- About Plattsburgh
As some of you might know, health care in the United States is very expensive. A simple visit to a doctor can cost hundreds of dollars and staying in the hospital for couple of days may cost a fortune. Therefore, health insurance is required at SUNY Plattsburgh for all students.
You must either purchase the health insurance plan offered by SUNY Plattsburgh (HTH Worldwide Insurance), or present proof of coverage by a comparable health insurance plan by another insurance company in the U.S. or outside of the U.S. that is valid here. If you have or intend to purchase alternative health insurance, you must show proof of coverage to International Students Services (ISS) in order to determine if the SUNY Plattsburgh health insurance coverage and fees can be waived.
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. You may download a copy below for your reference.
You can also download the comprehensive guide to your policy coverage. The document includes a definition of the policy, the extent of your benefits, and other provisions relating to your plan.
