Cornell self-funding insurance for students | The Ithaca Journal

ALBANY — Cornell University and the University of Rochester are among four institutions that will be allowed to provide health insurance directly to their students under a bill signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo last week.

The pilot program — also including New York University and Columbia University — waives a requirement that an institution obtain a license to fund an insurance plan. Under state law, other colleges have to either purchase a policy from a licensed insurance provider or obtain their own license before offering a coverage plan to students.
