Student Health Insurance


Students enrolled in on-campus courses at GIAL are required to carry health insurance for themselves and their immediate families during their time of study at GIAL, and must show proof of coverage at the time of registration.

International students who will be certified by GIAL for an F or J visa during their studies must have a health insurance policy that meets minimum standards. International students on a visa should identify themselves as international students when signing up for a U.S.-based health insurance policy online. See International Student Health Insurance.

GIAL does not provide any health insurance coverage.  In order to facilitate selection of a student health insurance plan for yourself and/or your family, here is a list of some reasonably priced student health insurance providers.  This list does not reflect any official GIAL recommendation or endorsement.

  1. Good Neighbor Insurance, Inc., www.gninsurance.com (Note: This company uses the term “international insurance” to refer to Americans who are traveling outside the US. If you are coming to the US as an international student, you can find information on their website: gninsurance.com/students-non-us.asp)
  2. Student Insurance, Inc., studentinsuranceinc.com, phone 866-931-9670
  3. Insurance Services of America (Missionary Health Insurance), www.missionaryhealth.net, email Mark@isabrokers.com

Students may choose to acquire heath insurance from an insurance provider other than those listed above. Be sure that you are covered from the first month of GIAL attendance through the end of your studies here.
