Students enrolled in Sinclair health care programs are expected to have in effect personal health insurance prior to enrolling in any course which includes a clinical experience requirement. This requirement for having health insurance is in place because most clinical sites that accept Sinclair students require it. If a student does not have health insurance, he/she may not be admitted into a clinical course, and therefore, not be able to complete the program. Sinclair provides accident insurance for students injured in clinical settings. However, the insurance carrier decides what treatment is eligible for reimbursement, and any treatment denied for reimbursement is the responsibility of the student, not Sinclair or the clinical site.
