All students are billed for Vassar’s health insurance on the July invoice. You may waive the student health plan if you have your own health insurance plan through a third party provider. View information on the Student Accounts website.
You should check with your provider to make sure that you will have continued coverage while you are out of the country. In addition to the health insurance policy mentioned above, all students who are approved to study abroad in the upcoming academic year will be billed a mandatory fee for evacuation for medical care, political strife and natural disaster as well as coverage for repatriation of remains.

Before you make changes to your health care coverage, be sure to consider your choices carefully.
