Health and Insurance

All international students at Edgewood College are required to be enrolled in a health insurance policy for the duration of their program. The U.S. Healthcare System functions differently than many other countries, so it is important to understand the policy you are enrolled in and how to maximize benefits. We strongly encourage all international students to utilize these resources to better understand the U.S. system and they best ways to navigate it.
