Information regarding International Student Health Insurance

The health insurance for our international students is an area of attention and for those unfamiliar, international students are required to purchase a health insurance plan through the university, they do not get a choice. Furthermore, under the ACA, these students that become residents after 5 years are required to fork out more money to pay for an additional insurance plan.
**These students are paying hundreds or even thousands of dollars for health insurance for themselves and their families that domestic students are not required to pay. **
While we work on a plan to help our international students we are requesting ALL GRADUATE STUDENTS to help by taking a minute to send an email out about your concern to the appropriate channels.
In the following document you will find suggested talking points, a template you can use to construct your email, and the contact information of university personnel that are involved in decisions regarding student healthcare.
