It is important for students to have their health insurance card to facilitate any need for medical attention. For students who do not have insurance coverage and who wish it, some suggested websites include:
It is the policy of Hardin-Simmons University that our international student population has health insurance to provide for their healthcare needs. Additionally, HSU wants to protect our students from compromising their financial status and their education. Therefore, international students will be automatically enrolled into the HSU insurance plan via the Office for Global Engagement. The insurance fee will be added to the student’s account at the start of each enrolled semester. The only exception is if the student already has an insurance plan that is comparable to the HSU plan, the student may submit proof of insurance that shows coverage throughout the semester enrolled. The student will need to submit this to the Office for Global Engagement (3rd floor of Sandefer) and sign a waiver by the fifth class day.
