Health Insurance information for International Students
When you enter college in a country other than your own for the first time, there are many things that are new, confusing and overwhelming. Casper College wants to help you understand and work with our customs and laws. One of the more confusing things you may have to deal with in this country is health care.
Health care in the United States is completely different than most other countries. Physicians do not work for the government. Everyone has to pay for their own health care and insurance. There is no government insurance policy or program for people who are sick or injured. Medical costs in the U.S. are very high compared with many other countries. Consequently, having adequate health insurance in the U.S. is extremely important.
Casper College requires all international students to carry some form of health insurance. If you have health insurance in your home country and if that insurance will cover health care expenses in the United States, it is acceptable to present documentation of this insurance. If you do not have insurance that is accepted in the U.S. you will need to purchase a policy that is. If you need help finding a company to purchase insurance through, the International Admissions personnel can direct you to a couple different companies that you can check out and compare policies.
Estimated Cost for Health Insurance for a student in the U.S. for 2015-2016 is $900.
You must purchase a policy here in the United States or show proof of insurance honored in the U.S. to the Enrollment Services Office, Gateway Building 3rd floor, by the end of the second week (Friday) of your first semester. You will be considered "out of status" if you do not comply with proof of insurance by this date.
All new students are required to attend New Student Orientation. This will give you an opportunity to meet the staff in our student services departments that can help you. You will also meet the other students on campus.
