The New York Film Academy Health Insurance Plan (NYFASHIP)

All incoming and continuing students attending long-term programs are required to have health insurance for the duration of their course of study. Long-term students will be automatically billed and enrolled in the New York Film Academy Student Health Insurance Plan (NYFASHIP).

Costs for student health insurance coverage will be billed to students’ accounts at the start of each term enrollment period. Enrollment periods typically coincide with semester start dates. For New York students attending programs with semesters spanning two enrollment periods, students’ accounts will be billed twice per semester or once per each 16-week enrollment period.

Please refer to the Rate Chart* below for information on costs of NYFASHIP coverage.

Waiver Application Process


The instructions that follow apply to FALL 2021 students ONLY. Students enrolling in later programs will be invited to participate in the waiver application process approximately one month prior to their program start dates.



THE WAIVER REQUEST APPLICATION PORTAL WILL BE OPEN JULY 15 THROUGH OCTOBER 1, 2021. WAIVER APPLICATIONS CANNOT BE ACCEPTED OR PROCESSED OUTSIDE OF THE THIS TIME PERIOD WHEN THE WAIVER PORTAL IS OPEN.

IF YOU HAVE COMPARABLE HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE AND IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE ENROLLED IN THE NEW YORK FILM ACADEMY STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN (NYFASHIP), YOU MUST SUBMIT AN ONLINE WAIVER APPLICATION BETWEEN JULY 15, 2021 AND OCT 1, 2021. IF YOU HAVE COMPARABLE HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE, AND YOU DO NOT SUBMIT A WAIVER APPLICATOIN THROUGH THE WAIVER APPLICATION PORTAL DURING THE TIME PERIOD NOTED ABOVE, YOU WILL BE ENROLLED IN NYFASHIP FOR THE DURATION OF THE ACADEMIC YEAR AND RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT OF FEES FOR HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE, 8/23/2021-9/14/2022.

ALL STUDENTS WHO DO NOT SUBMIT A WAIVER APPLICATION BETWEEN JULY 15, 2021 AND OCT 1, 2021 AND ALL STUDENTS WHOSE WAIVER APPLICATIONS HAVE BEEN DENIED WILL BE ENROLLED IN NYFASHIP AND RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT OF FEES FOR HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE, 8/23/2021-9/14/2022.

Upon completion of the waiver application process, students will receive an email from Aetna confirming that their application and information have been received for review. Aetna will provide a follow-up email notifying students if their waiver applications have been approved or declined. If declined, insurance charges will remain on students’ accounts. If approved, charges for NYFASHIP coverage will be removed (or refunded) from students’ accounts. Students who successfully waive out of NYFASHIP coverage will not be billed for subsequent semesters until Fall 2022, the start of a new academic year, and a new annual enrollment period. Students who graduate from their programs before Fall 2021 will not be billed for term coverage if they are graduated from NYFA before the start date of a Fall, Spring, or Summer enrollment periods.

As a Fall 2021 student, you will need to submit a waiver application each Fall, as waiver permissions expire at the end of each academic year. Your waiver application must be approved in order to dis-enroll from NYFASHP for any subsequent academic year.

Students who elect to enroll in NYFASHIP and students whose waiver applications have been declined will be billed for term enrollment costs, per the rate chart noted above for Fall, Spring and Summer terms. For these students, once the charges for insurance coverage are applied, they cannot be reversed.
