|AFTER GRADUATION, WILL YOU BE COVERED?
With graduation approaching, now is the time to start thinking about your health insurance coverage.
As a young adult, you have choices: stay on your parent’s health plan, buy your own plan, or get coverage through a new job.
If you decide to get your own insurance, you’ll find lots of choices at NY State of Health. You may be surprised how affordable getting coverage can be. Some plans will cost less than your monthly cell phone bill and for some people, depending on income, coverage will be free. Visit our Resources page for more information.
|IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS DUE AUGUST 1ST
The New York State Public Health Law requires certain immunizations for college and other post-secondary students enrolled for at least six (6) semester credit hours or the equivalent per semester. Failure to complete the immunization requirements by August 1st will result in deregistration and removal from housing.
For more information regarding the immunization requirements, please visit the Immunization Requirements page.

The Health Services is a primary care facility staffed by nurse practitioners and
physicians. The Health Services Office is funded by the Health Services fee assessed
to all full-time students who are eligible to utilize the Health Services Office.
The Health Services provides general medical and gynecological care, and carries a limited supply of medications free of charge to full-time students. Comprehensive lab tests needed for diagnostic purposes are performed on site by Quest and Labcorp. Any time you are ill, or have questions concerning your health, we are here to help you. We encourage you not only to use the services, but to offer suggestions and comments.
A referral list of consultants is available in cases where a specialist's evaluation and treatment are indicated; however, these and some other services, such as X-rays and lab tests not provided at FIT, are at the student's own expense. Students may consult their health insurance for coverage on these services.
If you have any questions, comments, and/or suggestions regarding the Health Services website, please stop by the Health Services at Room A402 or call 212 217.4190.
