Health Insurance for International Studies

The College realizes that good health is essential to academic success and provides a comprehensive health care plan for undergraduate and graduate students to support them in achieving their goals. The College’s Health and Wellness Center is a major component of the health care plan.

The Health and Wellness Center is a full-service, primary care office located on campus. There are no charges for physician, nurse practitioner, nursing, and short-term counseling services. The Health and Wellness Center also can provide referrals to local resources for care. Please see the Health and Wellness Center’s website for a description of their services.

Bryn Mawr international students are required to enroll in the College’s International Student Health Plan. This plan will satisfy U.S. visa regulations related to health insurance. The International Student Health Plan is underwritten by United Healthcare and is compliant with the Affordable Care Act. The coverage period of the plan is Aug. 1 through July 31 for students who are expected to return to College in following academic year and Aug. 1 through May 31 for students expected to graduate at the end of the academic year. Please take some time to familiarize yourself with important information included on the Health and Wellness Center’s website, where you will also find the link to the United Healthcare insurance website.
