Mills Student Health Plans
Student Health Plan Dates of Coverage:
Required Coverage: All Mills students must carry health insurance or public coverage (such as Medi-Cal or Medicare) that meets the minimum requirements of the Affordable Care Act. This includes comprehensive medical and mental health services, including outpatient, emergency and inpatient care including primary, specialty, pharmacy, lab, x-ray and other diagnostic services. International students must have additional benefits related to medical evacuation and repatriation. If you will waive coverage, please refer to these waiver guidelines for alternate coverage.
All Other Students may choose one of two Mills Student Health Plans or waive coverage. Through Kaiser Permanente, we offer two options to students and their dependents. Both plans meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act and both plans include medical evacuation and repatriation coverage for international students. Please consult the Filice Insurance Mills Student Health Plans Benefits Guide for more information or go to the Filice Insurance Student Benefits Website for Mills College.
Eligibility, leaves and withdrawals: Students are not eligible for any Mills student health plan for semesters they are studying abroad or while taking a leave of absence - except in the case of leaves for those who request coverage before the academic add deadline for the term. See the Mills Catalog for more details. Refunds of health plan fees are allowed only in cases where students have withdrawn or taken a leave before the academic add deadline and have not used any Kaiser Permanente services.
If you are covered under a parent, spouse, partner or guardian's health plan, you may want to take advantage of the benefits offered by a new law. If you are the main subscriber for your health plan, you do not need the protection provided by California’s Confidental Health Information Act. It requires health plans to honor confidential communications requests when individuals covered under another person’s policy seek sensitive services like birth control, STD tests, mental health care or any service if they feel that disclosure of information to the policy holder could lead to harm. You can read more about the law here.
It is every student's responsibility to complete the enrollment or waiver process online during the Summer Open Enrollment period (and during the Winter Open Enrollment period for students starting in the Spring). International students will be enrolled in a separate plan automatically.
Late Changes: After the close of the Open Enrollment Period, requests for changes are discouraged and considered late. Late change requests may be submitted to the Wellness Manager along with a completed Enrollment Change Form or Waiver Form (request from Wellness Manager at email@example.com). Late change requests are subject to a late fee of $150 that will be added to your student account. International students with late changes may request information from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Late Enrollment Due to Loss of Alternate Coverage: Students who lose alternate health coverage and have a notice of loss of coverage (for example loss of Medi-Cal coverage because a student turns 21 years of age) may request late enrollment in the Student Health Plan by sending a completed Enrollment Change Form and an official notice of loss of coverage to the Wellness Manager at 123 Cowell or by email at email@example.com. Verifiable loss of coverage will enable students to request special late enrollment and pricing based on Kaiser Permanente policies. If students aged out of another health plan, a late processing fee will apply (students are encouraged to enroll in a Mills plan prior to aging out). If other coverage was cancelled due to failure to pay or late payment, prorated late enrollment is not available. This option is not available for international students.
Billing for Student Health Plans: The Mills plans are billed by semester. Charges for the either the international student health plan (for all international students) or the comprehensive no-deductible Mills Student Health Plan (HMO) are added to all new student accounts during the summer of each year for the Fall Term. For all students except international students, charges are adjusted (for those who choose the Mills Student Health Deductible Plan (DHMO)) or removed (for those who waive Mills coverage and choose other coverage) based on enrollments and waivers carried out using the online Student Net during Summer Open Enrollment (7/1–8/31). All students (except international students) must enroll in or waive coverage. Do not assume if you see charges on your account for a health plan that you have been enrolled in a Mills health plan (except for the International Student Health Plan). Monitor your student account regularly. Sign up for eRefund in your student portal. If you still see charges that you do not owe on your student account, contact the M Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coverage After Graduation or Leaving Mills: Students including immigrants, permanent residents and citizens may purchase an individual or family plan directly from Kaiser Permanente (by calling 1.800.853.8216 or go to shopplans.kp.org/122003) within 60 days of loss of coverage or enroll in a plan through a state or federal health benefits exchange (such as Covered California). To learn more about options beyond the Student Health Plan, please review Health Insurance After Mills or contact the Manager of Wellness and Community Outreach at email@example.com.
