If you graduate, withdraw or take a leave, your Caltech Student Health Insurance Plan medical benefits end on the last day of the insurance term for which you last enrolled as a degree-seeking student. Students on detached duty are considered enrolled and still eligible for benefits. If you enrolled in Caltech Student Dental and/or Vision insurance those coverages will remain active until the end of the plan year on August 31st.
Fall: September 1 - December 31
Winter: January 1 - April 30
Spring: May 1 - August 31
Once coverage ends, you can choose to purchase medical continuation coverage for up to six months by visiting the Anthem Student Advantage site for Caltech Students.
