Health Insurance Requirements

Students and visiting scholars have the option of enrolling in the USD International Health Insurance plan, coordinated through USD’s provider Gallagher Student Health, or waiving with a comparable plan. Please refer to the resources below to familiarize yourself with the USD International Health Insurance plan:

*Non-emergency dental and vision care are not included in USD's health insurance plan. As is the norm in the United States these services must be purchased separately. Gallagher Student Health offers dental and vision supplemental coverage options on their website if you are interested.

**U.S. permanent residents and individuals on non-student visas (including the H-1B visa) are not eligible to enroll in the USD International Health Insurance plan.

Please refer to the Office of International Students and Scholars Health Insurance Policy for in-depth information on the USD health insurance requirement for international students.
