Health Insurance

All students on F-1 Visa at Avila University are required to have health insurance. A fee for this mandatory health insurance is applied to each international student's University bill. If you currently have your own medical/health insurance policy and wish to have the mandatory coverage waived, you must submit a detailed copy of your current insurance plan to the campus health nurse in Hodes Center within the first two weeks of the Fall or Spring semester. Your insurance coverage will be sent to the insurance company to verify that it is comparable to the mandated policy provided by Avila. If it is found to be equal to or better than the insurance required by the University, you will receive a credit on your University bill and will not be required to enroll in the University's medical/health insurance policy.

Health costs in the United States are very expensive. Health insurance can help you pay for many of these expenses. Your insurance must be effective in the United States. Avila mandates insurance coverage for your protection.
