Your checklist before arriving in the USA should include getting the right international health insurance for the duration of your stay. At NYLC, we can help you arrange insurance through the insurance provider, InternationalStudentInsurance.com. While New York Language does not require that students obtain medical insurance as a condition for admission, we cannot stress heavily enough that insurance should be purchased prior to travelling here. If you get sick while you are here, going to a doctor or an emergency room is extremely costly.
We have hand picked this provider, above all others, because they offer the most comprehensive plans at the most competitive prices. For coverage in the USA, the Student Secure plan is offered for F1 students starting at $65 per month, and the Atlas America plan is offered for tourists starting at $60 per month. To find these plans and to obtain further information please visit their web site or contact the international office to receive a brochure and application form.
