All students at Mount Ida College (including student-athletes) must have medical insurance (primary). NCAA rules do not permit any college or university to provide such coverage for student-athletes unless it is furnished for all students at the college.
Mount Ida College maintains athletic injury insurance for injuries received while participating in official practice sessions and/or in actual intercollegiate competition. This insurance is a secondary policy requiring that the primary (the student-athlete's) policy must first be applied to any medical costs.
It is also recommended that student-athletes who are insured through their parents and/or guardians bring referrals from their primary care physician in order to expedite the process of receiving health care in the area of Newton, Massachusetts should he/she sustain an injury during athletic participation. The referral from the student-athlete's primary care physician should state that the student may be seen by Dr. Jenn Schwartz, the Mount Ida College Team Physician, in the event of an athletic injury.
