Health Insurance Requirements for Scholars

Health Insurance Requirements

Health care in the U.S. can be very expensive. As part of the J-1 Visa Regulations, all Visiting Scholars and their dependents are required to have health insurance. At EWU, Visiting Scholars are offered the same insurance as international students. Insurance coverage is charged per academic term at the full rate, even if you are not present for the whole term. Note that each term will have a slightly different insurance rate. Please review the current coverage information.

Your EWU account will be charged each academic term for health insurance during your program. If you would like to request a waiver of the health insurance requirement, please follow the instructions and note the term deadlines. The Director of Global Student and Scholar Services will need to approve your policy before our insurance coverage requirement can be waived.

EWU has partnered with Rockwood Clinic to provide medical care to international students and scholars.
