Alumni Connection

Picnic with Us!

Help welcome the College's incoming freshmen at a picnic hosted by Rick '77 and Leslie Kingston at their Bethlehem home, Thursday, July 22.

Come for the food; come for the fun. But most of all come to welcome the new students to Moravian and show them how proud you are of your alma mater. The students and their families enjoy meeting alums and hearing about their Moravian experience.

For more on this and other upcoming events, click here or go directly to online registration. If you have any questions please call Barbara Parry in the Alumni Office at 610 861-1366.

Health Insurance for the Class of 2010

Congratulations again on your graduation! The Alumni Association sponsors an insurance program to help alums who are without coverage. Going without health insurance—even for a short period of time—puts you at personal and financial risk.

Despite health care reform, many people still will lack access to coverage. Of primary interest to new grads is that children can be covered on a parent's policy until age 26, even if they're no longer students. This expanded access may be helpful to many, but consider the following:

  • Coverage on a parent's policy may be expensive
  • Parental coverage may have network or geographic limitations
  • Some parents have no coverage, so this expanded access won't help
  • This change will begin in the fall of 2010 and may not impact many employer plans until policy renewals after the fall. Unless your insurer and employer have chosen to accelerate the effective date, you may need to seek alternatives if you need coverage sooner
  • If you have the Moravian College plan, our student health insurance ends on August 14, 2010. 

Don't risk going without health insurance, especially when affordable options are available. Most products are available to family members as well. Visit www.meyerandassoc.com/ma/moravian for more information or to apply online.
