Supporting Students’ Well-Being

Students covered under the SVA sponsored health insurance plan: Cigna/ Wellfleet, the insurance company, has informed it will cover student member costs for COVID-19 testing at an In-Network facility, including emergency room, urgent care and office visits. They’ll waive all out of pocket expenses (co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance).
