Concordia College requires all International Students to maintain medical insurance that provides coverage in the United States and meets certain minimum benefit requirements. To ensure these requirements are met, Concordia will automatically enroll all international students in the International Student Accident and Sickness Plan. The insurance premium will automatically be added to your tuition statement. The International Student Health Insurance enables students to get the medical care he or she needs as well as protects them from unexpected medical costs.
The premium for this coverage is $523 for Fall Semester (coverage runs 8/1/17-12/31/17) and will be included on your Fall Tuition Statement. You will be billed $732 in December for Spring Semester (coverage runs 1/1/18 – 7/31/18). You may have a health insurance policy from your country of residency; In this case, the international student coverage will be secondary coverage for all medical care.

Please complete all the necessary steps for doing so listed at https://www.concordiacollege.edu/directories/offices-services/risk-management/international-student-insurance-appeal/
This Appeal Form has a deadline of 9/13/2017 at 5:00 p.m. If an appeal is not made, reviewed, and APPROVED prior to 9/14/17, you will be billed for the Fairmont coverage and there will be no reversals on the charges.
