Health Insurance for International Students

Health insurance is mandatory for all international students at SUNY Plattsburgh

All students are automatically enrolled in the SUNY Plattsburgh HTH Worldwide Insurance Program. If you have comparable health insurance from your home country, you must present proof of coverage to the Global Education Office (GEO) in order to determine if the SUNY Plattsburgh health insurance coverage and fees can be waived. If you don't have a comparable health insurance plan, you must purchase the health insurance plan offered by SUNY Plattsburgh.

Please refer to our Waiving Health Insurance page  for more information.

In order to access information regarding your health insurance, you should log into the HTH Worldwide website. International Student Services has written a detailed document that describes how to log in and view vital information regarding your health plan.
