Health Care and Insurance in the U.S.

 EIIA 2020-21 International Student Insurance Plan (CORE Only)

Visitors to the United States often find that accessing health care is both confusing and costly.  The US government does not provide health care assistance to international students, but instead relies on a private system of health insurance.  No health insurance covers 100% of all health care costs-  even with health insurance, you must be prepared to pay a small amount each time you receive health care. This is called a “co-pay” or a “deductible." 

The EIIA Core International Student Accident and Health plan is for non-U.S. citizens enrolling in U.S. institutions of higher learning like Albion College.  F1 and J1 international students enrolled at Albion College are automatically provided with this student health insurance plan.  Insurance cards are available upon arrival at Albion College. 

Coverage dates are from August 24, 2020 - August 23, 2021.  Direct questions about this insurance to Amanda Ewers ().
