Health Insurance

WPS (Edgewood's International Student Insurance Policy)

At Edgewood College all* international students and exchange visitors are required to purchase health insurance to protect against the high cost of medical care in the United States. Edgewood will automatically enroll all F-1 students, J-1 exchange visitors and J-2 dependents in our health insurance plan with WPS Health Insurance, and the fee will be billed directly to your student account through the College’s Business Office. WPS is a non-profit corporation that has been providing quality health care coverage to people in Wisconsin for over 65 years.

With this plan, all services you receive at the Edgewood College Health Center are covered at 100% (no additional cost to you).  In addition to the College’s Health Center, there are many providers in the WPS network in the Madison area where you will receive 80% coverage after paying a $100 deductible.  

Students should carefully review WPS policy information (link below), especially the prescription drug benefits ($1000 annual maximum), and contact the Center for Global Education or the Health Center if you have concerns about the coverage.  You can use  to help you determine the cost of prescription drugs in the U.S.    

*Students sponsored by SACM and ISEP, who are required to be enrolled in insurance through their sponsors, are waived from the Edgewood insurance enrollment requirement.

Health Insurance Vocabulary


Seeking Care with WPS Insurance:


Do you need to go to the on-campus Wellness Center for a routine health assessment, care for acute illness and injuries, immunizations, or referrals?   
Visit Health Services in the Edgewood College Wellness Center on the first floor of Dominican Hall.  Use the Lakeside entrance of Dominican Hall facing Lake Wingra and Siena Apartments.  All services received at Edgewood Health Services are covered 100% through the WPS policy.

Visit the Health Services website for information about services available and scheduling an appointment.

Please note that the Edgewood College Health Center is typically closed on the evenings, weekends, and the months of June and July.  Check the website for current hours.

Do you need to go to an off-campus clinic, urgent care clinic, hospital, or emergency room?
To receive maximum coverage from WPS, you should find a Tier 1 provider in the WPS network.  If you seek care from an out-of-network provider (WPS uses the term “Tier 2 provider”), you will not receive maximum coverage and may be subject to higher healthcare costs. See the policy information link above for specific details about the coverage for Tier 1 and Tier 2 providers. 


How to find a Tier 1 provider/facility (Clinic, Urgent Care Center, Hospital, Emergency Room):
- Go to the WPS website to find a specific facility or provider. 
- Go to the Find a Doctor tool.
- Enter zip code (53711 for Edgewood College)
- Select Provider Location (typically 5 – 10 miles)
