Health Insurance


College life is hectic enough without having to deal with the financial difficulty involved with an unexpected illness, injury or emotional stressor. Without good information and adequate health insurance, a minor incident can explode into a major problem. Using the Student Health & Counseling Center and having health insurance are both smart moves for students who want to avoid unnecessary financial, physical and emotional stress. Some students may still be covered by their parents’ insurance plan; if so, please have a copy of your insurance card with you. It is wise to check with the company to assure the coverage requirements. 

University of Wisconsin-Parkside participates in the UW System Campus Consortium Insurance plan and has a mandatory insurance plan for international students. Domestic students are encouraged to purchase plans through private companies or the health insurance marketplace at

International Health Insurance

International students and scholars, international faculty holding non-immigrant visas are required to purchase this insurance plan.

To be enrolled, students must attend classes within the first 31 days beginning with the first day for which coverage is effective. Any student withdrawing from the University during the first 31 days after the effective date of coverage shall not be covered under the insurance plan. A full refund of premium will be made, minus the cost of any claim benefits paid by the Policy. Students who graduate or withdraw from the University after 31 days, whether involuntarily or voluntarily, will remain covered under the Policy for the term purchased and no refund will be allowed.

The Plan Administrator reserves the right to determine if the student has met the eligibility requirements. If the Plan Administrator later determines the eligibility requirements have not been met, its only obligation is to refund the premium.

Coverage for Dependents

Dependents will be enrolled when the student is enrolled in the insurance plan at an additional cost.
