Student Health Insurance

Student Health Insurance
The North Dakota University System (NDUS) offers health insurance coverage to international NDUS students through United Healthcare insurance company.
 
All international students are required to have health insurance in place and verified as per Policy 505 but in some cases, an international student is able to secure a waiver from the NDUS health insurance plan. Learn more about the waiver.

International students are automatically enrolled by semester in the student health insurance plan by their institution. A student may opt-in to NDUS health insurance coverage prior to automatic enrollment to expedite confirmation of coverage. The premium cost is billed to the international student's campus connection account. If an international student wants to waive this health insurance coverage, comparable coverage must be in place and verified through the waiver process. Learn more about the waiver. WSC'S International Health Insurance Procedure outlines payment requirements.
 
Eligibility
All full-time undergraduate and graduate students, actively taking classes on campus, are eligible to enroll. "Full-time" is defined as:
  1. Undergraduate students enrolled in 12 or more credit hours each semester
  2. Additionally, eligible students who enroll may insure their dependents as well. Eligible dependents are the student's legal spouse/domestic partner and dependent children under 26 years of age. The student must be enrolled in order to access an enrollment opportunity for dependents
  3. Students eligible for this insurance plan must be actively attending class in person. Students that are primarily enrolled in online courses, home study programs, or correspondence courses do not fulfill the eligibility requirements.
  4. This list is not exhaustive; each applicant must review the insurance policy information and base eligibility determinations upon that review. If a student is found to be ineligible for the policy, United Healthcare will remove the student from the policy. If you have questions if you are eligible or not, please contact Katie Fitzsimmons at the NDUS Office.
Plan Coverage Periods and Premiums
To add a spouse and/or dependent, the rate and coverage periods are the same as the student rate. 
International Students

Canadian Provincial Health Insurance
Canadian citizens are not required to carry the North Dakota University System insurance policy through United Healthcare. You should refer to your Canadian private and provincial health insurance providers for more information about what sort of coverage you have while attending college in the United States. 

*During the global COVID-19 pandemic, it is especially important that you contact your Canadian health insurance provider to learn if testing for COVID-19 and treatment for COVID-19 related illnesses will be covered while you are in the United States.  If testing and treatments for COVID-19 are not covered in the U.S., WSC strongly recommends that you purchase the North Dakota University System insurance policy.   

If you are interested in purchasing the North Dakota University System insurance policy, read through the policy details on this webpage and email the student affairs office at, wsc.studentaffairs@willistonstate.edu to initiate your enrollment into the plan. Include the following details: First and Last name, WSC student ID, date of birth, U.S. phone number, and your address in Williston.

Documentation for Provincial Providers
You might be required to submit additional documents to your province prior to the start of each academic year. Download any necessary forms and send them to the Office of International Programs to be signed. The province may only need a verification of enrollment. If no form is specified, contact the province with questions regarding their specific requirements.
