International Student Health Insurance

All international students must be enrolled in a group health insurance plan either through SUNY Buffalo State or a private group plan that has comparable coverage. Students with a private health insurance policy with comparable coverage to the SUNY-mandated health insurance may request to waive the SUNY Buffalo State insurance with approval by Weigel Health Center. The premium is $1,492.28 per year for August 15, 2018, through August 14, 2019. Premiums are pro-rated for coverage during the academic year. The premium is subject to change each year. All American students studying abroad must carry this insurance.
