To whom it may concern,
This is ______________, an F-1 international student. I would like to enroll in the NY state Essential Plan instead of the school insurance plan, but I am not sure if the Essential Plan meets the waiver requirements. I’ve attached a document about the details of the Essential Plan. Could you please take a look at it to see if the plan is eligible?
