Medical insurance is required for all international students at Midwestern State University. Enrollment in the mandatory MSU Health Insurance Plan is automatic at the time of registration, and the cost of the policy will appear on your tuition and fee bill as Student Health Insurance. The fall insurance premium appears on the fall semester bill; the premiums for spring and summer coverage are combined on the spring semester bill. Individual student coverage for calendar year 2011-2012 is approximately $700.
Health coverage is provided through the ACE American Insurance Company. In addition to health insurance the international student policy covers medical evacuation and repatriation of remains in case of death. The complete insurance brochure is available at the International Student Service office or Vinson Health Center.
Health insurance purchased from a private company may be accepted in lieu of the mandatory MSU student policy. The International Services office will evaluate previously existing policies on a case-by-case basis.
Please open: Form waiver (.pdf) for information about the health insurance waiver. If an application for a waiver is completed they may be returned to the International Student Services office.
