Health Insurance and COVID-19 Insurance Information for International Students and Scholars

If you are concerned about possible health care costs if you did need to be tested or treated for COVID-19, please remember that the U-M health insurance plans, including the International Student/Scholar Health Insurance Plan, and the health insurance plans administered by the U-M Benefits Office, such as GradCare, U-M Premier Care, etc. all cover medically necessary health care costs related to testing and treatment for infectious diseases and medical conditions, including COVID-19.

Also, Blue Care Network (BCN) recently announced that the International Student/Scholar Health Insurance Plan will cover medically necessary COVID-19 testing with no deductible or other cost-sharing.

You can review the details of your plan for specific coverage information by using the links below.

Also, remember  that all of these insurance plans also cover flu shots at no cost to you. Although a flu shot will not protect against COVID-19, we are still in the middle of flu season in Michigan, and flu shots are still available.
