Health Insurance for International Students

Health insurance is mandatory for all international students at SUNY Plattsburgh

All international students are automatically enrolled in the SUNY Plattsburgh GeoBlue Insurance Program. Due to SUNY regulations we can no longer waive this requirement, regardless of whether you have comparable health insurance from your home country.  All enrolled international students must purchase the health insurance plan offered by SUNY Plattsburgh.

International Student Health Coverage

The Global Education Office staff will automatically process your enrollment in this insurance shortly before the beginning of each semester. When your enrollment is complete, you will receive an email from GeoBlue containing important information about how to access your health insurance. If you are already enrolled and have questions, please log in to the GeoBlue website where you will find the answers to many of your questions. Once logged in, you will be able to:

  • Print your insurance ID card
  • View the GeoBlue Member Guide
  • Review your health insurance plan benefits
  • Locate providers, hospitals, and pharmacies that you can use with your plan

If you are an enrolled student and do not receive an email from GeoBlue before the semester begins, please email the GEO staff to let us know.
