4 The Young Harris College identification card (YHC One Card) is the sole property of Young Harris College. The YHC One Card is used to access certain campus buildings, including a student’s residence hall and room, as well as act as a meal/debit card in the Campus Restaurant and elsewhere. Students are required to carry and upon the request of College personnel, including residence hall and library staff members, to exhibit their YHC One Card. Students who falsify information on their YHC One Card are subject to disciplinary action. Under no circumstance should a student allow anyone else to use his/her YHC One Card. If for any reason, the YHC One Card is lost or stolen, a fee of $30 will be required in order to replace the card.
5 All students are required to be covered by a personal health insurance plan. The cost of college sponsored health insurance may be waived if a student provides proof of insurance by completing the online waiver form through Pearce & Pearce (see Health and Wellness Services).
It has been the practice of Young Harris College to offer a basic medical policy for our students who did not have other insurance options; however, on March 16, 2012, The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a final student health coverage rule to ensure that students have access to coverage and benefit from the Affordable Care Act's Patient's Bill of Rights, preventive services coverage, and other consumer protections.
These rules necessitate substantial changes to the insurance policy that the college has offered to our students in the past. Therefore, the details regarding enrollment, plan specifics and claims procedures for the 2012-2013 college-sponsored insurance plan are currently undergoing review and major revision.
As soon as details are known, a letter will be sent to all new and returning students outlining the particulars of the new plan and the enrollment/waiver process that will need to be followed.
For more information, contact the Office of Health and Wellness Services.
