  • BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO WAIVE THE TRINITY INSURANCE PLAN:

    • We strongly recommend that you check with your insurance provider to assure continued health insurance coverage while at Trinity, specifically for diagnostic testing (lab work and x-rays) and referrals to specialists.
    • In the past, students with high-deductible plans or out-of-state Medicaid plans have had difficulty accessing affordable care while away from their “network”.  Check to make sure that your insurance plan or HMO allows you to access healthcare from local community resources in Washington, DC.
    • A note about HMOs:  Some HMOs offer guest membership plans which provide healthcare benefits to continue at the same level when away from home.  Please contact your HMO insurance provider to find out if this option is available.
