Health Insurance

Bradley University has made a continuing commitment to provide students with options on various types of Insurance.

Health and wellness are key components to making your academic and personal experience at college both meaningful and successful. To avoid the potential hardship of medical expenses that may arise, we recommend that students maintain comprehensive health insurance coverage during your years at Bradley.

For those international students who do not have insurance through a U.S.-based insurance carrier, there are two options:

Option 1

For those international students who do not have insurance through a U.S.-based insurance carrier, the Gallagher StudentInternational Students & Scholars Plan (ISS)is available on a voluntary basis. You may be covered under this plan if you are a non-United States citizen with a current passport or visa traveling outside your home country to the United States to engage in full time international educational activities. Please note that International Students are NOT automatically enrolled in this Plan as they have been in previous years.

Plan Highlights Include:

  • After a $100 per injury or sickness deductible, the first $5,000 Covered Expenses paid at 80%; thereafter, 100% of Covered Expenses to the $250,000 Aggregate Maximum;
  • Freedom in Choice of Providers- Services can be received from any doctor, specialist or hospital;
  • Accidental Death & Dismemberment Coverage;
  • Worldwide Assistance Services- Offers 24-hour emergency travel assistance services including Medical Evacuation and Repatriation of Remains;
  • Dependent Coverage- Spouse and/or children (under the age of 25)
  • Monthly Payment Option- Enroll for a minimum of one month or for multiple months. If you choose to enroll on a monthly basis, it is your responsibility to make timely renewal payments as reminder notices are not sent.

Please refer to the Plan brochure under 'Benefits & Plan Information' for complete details of coverage, exclusions & limitations.

The enrollment process for the ISS Plans is entirely online and will begin June 1, 2014. Students wishing to learn more or enroll should visit International Students and Scholars Accident and Sickness Insurance. Payment can be made by credit card or e-check through Gallagher Student’s website.

Option 2

Obtain health insurance on your own after arriving at Bradley but before registering for classes. You will still need to present proof of your insurance coverage to the Graduate School. International Students (from India, China, Middle -East etc.) might consider the policy offered by International Student Insurance (Enhanced Plan) among others.

The coverage must include “major medical” and should be for no less than one year, renewable.
