In the United States, health insurance is necessary to get the medical care you need. As an international student, you are required to have health insurance for your entire stay in the United States.
Vincennes University does not provide a specific insurance plan you need to purchase. As long as you meet the minimum requirements, you have the ultimate flexibility to choose the insurance plan that best fits your needs and budget!
Your plan must provide coverage at levels of:
- Medical Benefit - Minimum Requirement is $100,000
- Repatriation of Remains - Minimum Requirement is $25,000
- Medical Evacuation - Minimum Requirement is $50,000
- Deductible per accident or illness - Minimum Requirement is $500
You may have obtained insurance in your home country that meets this requirement. If not, we will assist you with purchasing health insurance when you arrive. Please estimate $700 for one year of health insurance coverage. Health insurance expenses will not be included in your school tuition bill.
If you need to purchase health insurance, Vincennes University recommends IMG and specifically the Student Health Advantage plan. Pleases see https://www.imglobal.com/travel-medical-insurance/student-health-advantage for more details.
Your policy’s coverage must become effective by no later than the first day of classes.
