Health Insurance

A message from the International Student Center Team

Dear Seattle University International Student,

We would like to inform you about Seattle University’s international student insurance provider - USI. As you may know, each year you are automatically enrolled in SU’s USI insurance plan.

If you are hoping to utilize your own personal insurance plan this year you will need to waive out of the USI policy (even if you waived out last year, you will need to waive out again this year). Please note, even if you are on a sponsored program, or your government is paying for your insurance, you still need to fill out the waiver form.

Cost of Insurance:

For more information on the cost of health insurance through Seattle University, please see the information posted on the Student Financial Services page:

Waiving Your Insurance Plan:

In order to waive out of the new SU insurance program you will need to fill out the online waiver form at:

Any questions about the waiver can be directed to USI Insurance

If you choose to waive, your policy must include:

  • Primary Care & Emergency Services within a 25 mile radius of Seattle University
  • coverage for Inpatient and Outpatient Mental Health benefits & prescription drug coverage
  • maximum annual benefit maximum that is unlimited per accident or illness
  • annual deductible not to exceed $100 per accident or illness
  • repatriation of remains coverage in the amount of $25,000
  • coverage for medical evacuation to your home country in the amount of $25,000
