FAQ - Health Insurance


Do I need health insurance during International Welcome Weeks and/or Early Fall Start?

We recommend it - you never know what can happen! The UW's International Student Health Insurance plan (ISHIP) begins in September, not necessarily when you arrive in the U.S. If you arrive early and experience a gap in insurance coverage, it is recommended that you purchase short-term insurance in case you become sick or get injured.

For any questions regarding coverage, or recommendations for a short term insurance plan before the quarter begins, contact the ISHIP office so that they can assist you.

Visit the ISS website for additional health insurance information and resources for international students.
