| Flu-like Syndrome Protocol|
NSU faculty, staff or students exhibiting flu-like symptoms please read the Flu-like Syndrome Protocol.
| Health History and Immunizations Requirements|
Norfolk State University complies with the code of Virginia (23-7.5) which requires all full-time students to provide documentation of health history and immunization.
All full-time undergraduate students (U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents) taking 12 credit hours and all international students (full and part-time, graduate and undergraduate) will automatically be enrolled in the University sponsored Accident Only Expense Benefit and the Outpatient Prescription Drug Benefit, insured by BCS Insurance Company. This Plan is mandatory and no waivers will be allowed. Coverage is in effect 24 hours-a-day and is valid world-wide (except international students while in their home country). The annual charge is $100 ($50 per semester).
To obtain plan documents, claim forms or print your insurance ID Card go to www.cirstudenthealth.com/nsu .
The United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule March 16, 2012 outlining the applicability of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2012 (collectively “Affordable Care Act” or “ACA”) to student insurance plans.
Because there are significant changes to the Plan for 2012/2013 Academic Year and the enhancements had significant impact on the premium, NSU will no longer offer a Voluntary Optional Sickness Plan to Domestic Students at NSU.
Enrollment in a Sickness Plan is mandatory for International students only (special approval for waiver of enrollment can be requested with the Coordinator of International Student Services).
