Student Health Insurance

Domestic and international students can obtain health insurance through the health care exchanges established pursuant to the Affordable Care Act.

All full-time international students must have adequate medical insurance coverage, either through an overseas student insurance plan or other international student insurance plan. 

Below is a list of health insurance companies for international students. Hood College does not endorse any of the programs listed and students will need to purchase with their discretion. Our purpose is to provide you various health insurance program options which are available to you.
