What Is Student Health Insurance?

  • Most schools require that students have health insurance. Most colleges and universities offer a campus health policy or it can be wavered if you currently have health insurance through your family plan or as a dependent of a covered parent or guardian.
  • Student health plans often cover check-ups, prescription drugs, and require that you visit the school’s health center, student clinic, or school specialist to receive the lowest co-pay.
  • Premiums are often part of your tuition and fees. Uncovered students who want to have a more flexible policy can purchase their own insurance and waive the mandatory fee levied by their college or university.

What Is Available For International Students?

  • The U.S. Department of State requires international students with J-1 exchange visitor visas to have student health insurance.
  • Students with F-1 and M-1 are not required to have student health insurance.
  • Often mandatory health insurance from your school will cover basic medical care and prescription drugs, but if you would like more comprehensive student health coverage, you might want to look into other plans.

Chris Webre got me a great rate and exactly the coverage I needed for my business. He kept in touch with me throughout the process. If I had a question, he was quick to respond with an answer. He made what was quickly becoming a headache, a pleasure. I’m glad I went with Dan Burghardt Insurance for my general liability business insurance. Thanks Chris.
