Juilliard Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP)

The Juilliard School offers an excellent Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) that provides benefits for off-campus medical services and prescription drugs.   


  • Coverage for sickness and injury. 
  • Coverage for preventative services as mandated by the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
  • Unlimited annual or lifetime maximum for covered benefits.
  • The SHIP does not cover routine vision or dental care.

Students should refer to the insurance brochure (available here in July) for details regarding what is and is not covered and what percentages of expenses are covered. Most conditions require students to pay a portion of expenses.

The Juilliard Student Health Insurance Plan is in compliance with New York insurance regulations and meets or exceeds the minimum insurance standards for student health insurance plans as established by the Affordable Care Act.

General questions about health insurance and prescription drug coverage may be directed to the Administrator of Health and Counseling Services at (212) 799-5000 ext. 282 or email Beth Techow


  • All full-time students are automatically enrolled in the Juilliard Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP).  All students are strongly encouraged to remain enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan.
  • Enrollment is mandatory for all international students, and coverage may not be waived under any circumstances.
  • US students may waive enrollment in the SHIP if they have US-based insurance which meets the waiver criteria, including coverage for medical services in New York City. Students must provide documentation and complete a waiver form available on WebAdvisor.

IMPORTANT: Health Insurance and Referrals to Outside Practitioners

Students should make an appointment with Health Services first for all non-emergency conditions. The Student Health Insurance Plan requires a referral every year from Health Services before going to an outside provider.  The only exceptions to this rule are for emergency medical services, when the student is not in the greater New York City area, or when Health and Counseling Services are closed.

Health Services is happy to assist you with questions. Please call (212) 799-5000, ext. 282, or email Beth Techow, Administrator.
