MIIS Students enrolled in long or short-term programs are required to have health insurance. Read below for more detailed information.

Should you decide to opt-out of the MIIS Student Health Insurance plan, you still need to provide proof of health insurance. Students who are opting out of the MIIS insurance plan, but have not yet obtained private insurance must do so before 4:00 pm on the first day of classes. The following are helpful links for obtaining private health insurance:
Health Plan One: Online health insurance marketplace for individuals, families, and small groups/businesses. It also serves as an educational source for all health care topics. They do not endorse one specific policy. Instead, they educate students on their options, both while currently enrolled and options for after they graduate.
EHealthInsurance.com: Online tool for finding health insurance.
Med Secure Intl. LLC: Offers international health/travel insurance for students, scholars, expatriates, missionaries, boaters and businesses. Owned by a MIIS alum.
