Health Insurance & Vaccinations

Health Insurance Heading link


All students enrolled in our program are required to have proof of health insurance valid in the United States. Your proof of insurance must include these minimum requirements:

  • Name of student
  • Dates of coverage
  • Sickness Minimum coverage of $50,000 USD per incident
  • Injury Minimum coverage of $50,000 USD per incident
  • In English
  • U.S. contact information listed


The Tutorium highly recommends health insurance for F-1 students in the United States (not citizens or residents) that includes:

  • Repatriation ($7,800 USD minimum)
  • Expenses associated with medical evacuation ($10,000 USD minimum)

The Tutorium does not offer health insurance, but you can use this list of insurance providers that we recommend.

If you have dependents (family) with you, you should buy insurance for them as well as yourself. Health care costs for your family could negatively affect your ability to study.

You should have dental and vision check ups before you leave your home country. Vision (eye) care, dental (teeth), hearing (ear) care are usually not covered in health insurance. If you think you’ll need these services while in the U.S., you can buy additional insurance here:
