If you’re studying abroad, we recommend that you consider signing up for a health insurance plan. Health insurance will help you pay for any medical bills, emergencies, and prescriptions you need while you are an international student studying in the United States. While we do not require health insurance for BIA students, we do strongly recommend that you sign up for coverage. We recommend PSI International Student & Scholar Health Insurance for our students. They offer Silver or Gold plans at very affordable rates starting at $42 per month for BIA students.
