Student Health
Services Marygrove College places the well being of its students as priority, always. With this in mind, the College wants to ensure that each of its students has, or has access to, necessary medical coverage. Marygrove College’s policy regarding student health insurance is that all residential students (those living in Florent Gillet Residence Hall) and international students must carry health insurance coverage. Commuter undergraduate and graduate students are highly encouraged to have adequate health insurance coverage and may purchase the plan voluntarily.

In cooperation with Specialty Risk Group International, Inc., we are pleased to make available a student health insurance plan designed specifically for Marygrove College students. Specialty Risk Group is a leading broker in student accident and sickness plans, providing coverage at a cost you can afford. The plan is underwritten by Combined Insurance Company of America and will provide coverage for a full 12 months when purchased in the fall.

All residential students taking three (3) or more credits will automatically be enrolled in the plan unless they sign a WAIVER FORM containing proof of comparable coverage by the published deadline. Waiver Forms are to be submitted to the College’s Department of Athletics, Wellness & Recreation (MC 040) or to the Office of the Director of Residence Life, FG 101. The fee for purchasing the insurance can be applied to the student’s account or the student can pay the insurance company directly.

Some benefits of the plan offered by the College and Specialty Risk Group include 80/20 deductibles, coverage of pre-existing conditions (read the policy plan for details), a PPOM Network (www.ppom.com), and options for prescription discounts. The plan’s handbook is online at www.specrisk.com/marygrove.

For more information on the plan available to Marygrove College students, please contact Specialty Risk Group International at 877.581.2672 or contact Marygrove’s Department of Athletics, Wellness and Recreation at 313.927.1391.
