Health Insurance

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

The 2017-2018 MIIS Student Health Insurance Plan

Due to the experiential nature of our academic programs and for your personal health and wellbeing, we require all students enrolled in 6 or more credit hours during the fall/spring terms or 4 or more credit hours during the summer term to have health insurance. To meet the MIIS health insurance requirement, you must either:

  • Enroll in the MIIS Student Health Insurance Plan offered through JCB Insurance Solutions

  • Waive out of the Student Health Insurance Plan by providing proof of existing health insurance that is comparable in coverage to our plan.  In the case of international students, government or socialized healthcare provided by your home countries is acceptable, provided that it includes the appropriate coverage in the United States.
  • Once you are at the www.jcbins.com website, enter "Middlebury Institute of International Studies" and follow the prompts from there.

This step is required each semester unless selecting the annual option when enrolling; the waiver is annual. The health insurance requirement should be satisfied by 4:00 pm on the first day of classes.

For an overview of the plan please refer to PDF iconMIIS 17-18 Insurance Summary.pdf. For full plan details, please refer to the PDF iconMIIS 17-18 Final Brochure.pdf.

Other Health Insurance Options

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 4:00pm 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.
