Insurance and Healthcare
Medical expenses in the United States are very expensive, and the University is required to guarantee medical insurance to all international students on the F-1 or J-1 visa status. The University contracted the most cost effective medical insurance with Lewermark International Student Insurance. Students receive information during orientation, and the insurance cards may be printed at www.lewermark.com/mwsu or pick one up from the ISS office. Please keep your insurance card in your wallet with your ID and carry it with you.
