The United States does not have a nationalized health care system.  While in many countries the government bears the cost of health care for its citizens and even sometimes for its visitors, individuals and families in the United States are responsible for these costs themselves.  If you need medical care and do not have health insurance, you may find yourself owing thousands of dollars.  The health insurance system offers you protection against these costs.  For more information on international student health insurance requirements, click here.

The health insurance policy that is sponsored by the university is available through Palmer Student Programs, LLC.  For specific policy coverage questions contact Palmer Student Programs, LLC at 1-844-545-4251 or visit

If you have general questions about this insurance, feel free to contact the Rinker Center for Global Affairs at 765-285-5422.
