International Accident & Sickness Insurance
Because our institution is concerned with the promotion
of good health for each student as well as adequate medical health
coverage in case of unexpected accidents or illness, we require all interna-itional students to have our health insurance coverage. Coverage cannot be waived.
The mandatory International Insurance
Plan provides the following key benefits:
- It provides a $250,000 Aggregate Accident & Sickness Benefit
Limit with $5,000 in basic benefits paid at 100 percent and $250,000 in major
medical benefits paid at 80 percent. There is a $25 deductible per visit. The medical limits provided meet USIA
requirements. Global medical assistance services are provided through
Assist America for medical evacuation and repatriation. $5,000 in AD &
D benefits is provided.
- It is active for currently enrolled international
students while they are in the United States. The cost for this plan is
$2,023 per academic year plus any applicable student fees.
Please refer to your student brochure for a detailed
explanation of these coverages. Current brochures will be available in
the Whitworth Student Accounting Services Office, in McEachran Hall, in August.
