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 Whitworth Health Insurance
Plan provides the following key benefits:
- This plan provides comprehensive benefits for office visits, diagnostic services, prescriptions, and hospitalization coverage to a limit of $500,000. The plan provides the new Patient Protection Affordable Care Act (PPACA) limits for student insurance.
- It is active for currently enrolled international
students while they are in the United States. The cost for this plan is
$1,130 for students 24 years of age or younger, and $1,610 for students 25 to 30 years of age, per academic year plus any applicable student fees.
