This morning you may have received an email from your departments regarding the Graduate Assistant's health insurance plan. The email communicated that the State of Maryland has not yet approved the insurance rates for Aetna Student Health for UMBC. The Graduate Assistant Advisory Council (GAAC) and Graduate Student Association (GSA) were not apprised of this issue prior to receiving that email. However, going forward we will be working with our administrative partners (The Graduate School and University Health Services) to gain clarity about the situation and to better understand the implications for graduate assistants.
We will distribute new information as we receive it.
