Health Insurance is billed automatically to each student account. Students can see doctors for free and get routine medical tests and medicines at reasonable prices at Lafene Health Center.  However, for serious medical problems students will need to go to a hospital.  These services are not covered by the campus fee and can be very expensive.  For this reason health insurance is a requirement for international students.
