International Student Insurance

As part of this relationship with you as a full-time international student or scholar, we facilitate the mandatory health insurance program provided to you through LewerMark.

This plan provides the International Student Support Program which is designed to help you face the challenges of balancing school, adjusting to a new culture and adapting to other responsibilities. As a part of the circle of care provided by your Lewis community, you will have access to the Student Wellness Center on campus as well as LewerMark’s TELEDOC service. One of the many services provided under the program, Teledoc provides you with unique 24/7/365 access to U.S. board-certified doctors by phone, the web or phone app in minutes.
