Health Insurance for International Students

Coe requires all international students to have sickness and accident insurance.

The cost of healthcare, especially hospitalization, is very expensive in the United States. Even a short illness can have a high cost associated with it. Students, therefore, must have health insurance to protect themselves from the effects of those costs. Each international student at Coe is automatically enrolled in the program and billed for the cost. Please refer to this webpage to get information about your LewerMark insurance plan.​

The sickness and accident insurance plan available through Coe is administered by LewerMark Student Insurance. All questions about coverage and claims should be directed to LewerMark.

This insurance does NOT cover injuries associated with varsity athletics. If you plan to participate in a varsity sport, you must ensure you have appropriate insurance. See below for more information.

International Student-Athletes and Additional Requirements

International students at Coe - degree seeking, exchange, and ESL - have the opportunity to join and play on varsity athletics teams. If interested, students must complete all necessary paperwork, provide evidence of proper insurance coverage, and complete a physical examination. This is something you should begin doing while you are applying to the College or just after you’ve enrolled as a student at Coe. Finishing these requirements early ensures students will not have delays in getting on the field or court once their team's season begins.

International athletes need to have an NCAA-approved insurance policy either in addition to the ISO International Student Insurance policy. Athletes who have evidence of an alternative policy must consult with the Athletics Department by July 1 each year so that they can ensure that all required paperwork is taken care of. Students should work with the Athletic Department and with the Office of Admission ( to complete this process. If international student-athletes exhaust all other insurance options and still need to purchase additional supplemental insurance coverage, please contact Anna Drexler (
