This applies to all international students holding an F-1 visa to attend school in the United States. You should be registered for insurance continuously (ex: September 1 – August 31) during the time you hold an F-1 visa at DigiPen. If you already have your own insurance coverage, please fill out the Proof of Insurance form and submit it with a copy of proof of coverage, the terms in English, and coverage amounts listed in United States dollars.
If you need to purchase international health insurance, refer to the links below as a starting point for your research on different insurance plans. The listing of the providers is provided as a convenience for students and is not an endorsement of any insurance program. Please carefully research insurance plans to determine which insurance company offers the best coverage to fit your needs (e.g., emergency room visits, prescription co-pays, deductible amounts, etc.).
If the above insurance provider does not meet your needs, the link below will list a sample of health insurance plans that students may elect to opt into. Please note that this is NOT a comprehensive list and you may find a plan that better fits your needs. Other Health Insurance Plans
Once you purchase your insurance plan, please fill out the Proof of Insurance Form and submit it with a copy of a card or certificate that indicates the dates of coverage, the terms in English, and coverage amounts listed in U.S. dollars.
Failure to provide proof of insurance by the start of the semester may lead to the cancellation of enrollment and your F-1 visa. Proof of coverage must be provided at the start of every academic year.
