Recent Graduates

Students graduating from UB should consider their health insurance options.

Recently graduated or graduating soon?

We encourage all new graduates from UB to take a moment to consider their options for health insurance.  Make sure to check the end date of your current health insurance coverage.  Take action before the end date.  Anyone without health insurance can apply through NY State of Health.

Students who experience a Qualifying Life Event can enroll at any time. Qualifying Life Events include:

  • no longer eligible to stay on your parent’s health plan
  • loss of other health insurance, i.e. a student health plan
  • a permanent move within New York State
  • marriage or domestic partnership
  • birth of a child

Students can enroll online at NY State of Health, call the customer service center at 1-855-355-5777, or schedule a phone appointment with a Certified Enrollment Assistor who can walk through their health plan options here.

For help understanding and navigating the health insurance process.
