Disclaimer l.jpg

  • Please keep in mind that this tutorial is a “general guideline”. It in NO WAY guarantees coverage by the insurance company.

  • The only way to get an estimate on a procedure is to collect all of the necessary information and submit it to the insurance so they can do a pre-determination estimate. Unfortunately with insurance there usually is never a 100% answer.

  • Feel free to contact me with any questions: Heather Oehrlein hloehrlein@stcloudstate.edu

Understanding the process l.jpg
Understanding the Process

  • Use the Emergency Room ONLY for life-threatening illness/Injury or potential for permanent disability.

  • Average Ambulance costs (transportation only) $1300 (based on St. Cloud Costs).

    In some cultures it is customary to go to the hospital with any and all medical needs, however, if you do that here in the US you will end up with large bills that you will be responsible to pay. You always want call the nurseline (1-877-643-5130) or to use Student Health Center and if they are closed, go to your networks urgent care facilities.

Examples of non covered services l.jpg
Examples of Non-covered Services

  • Preventative medicine, including:

  • Vaccines

  • Dental (unless injury to sound natural tooth)

  • Eye exams

    The reason preventative medicine is not included is because this is an accident and illness plan. Preventative medicine gets to be costly and the plan’s premium would go way up if this were included.

Why is insurance mandatory l.jpg
Why is Insurance Mandatory?

  • MnSCU, which governs the Minnesota Colleges and Universities, has a policy in place which requires all MnSCU F-1 / J-1 International Students to purchase the mandatory Student Health Insurance.

    Procedure 3.4.1 under Policy 3.4 Part 3 says: 

    Part 3. International Students.

    International students must purchase the system-approved student health insurance, except those students whose sponsoring agency or government certifies that the student is covered under a plan provided by the sponsoring agency or government.
