Health Insurance for F-1 Visa Students
Pierce College F-1 Visa international students are insured through a district mandated policy offered by Relation Insurance. If used correctly, this policy should cover 100% of medical expenses in case of accident and illness (certain exceptions may apply). An insurance representative provides information about coverage during the mandatory orientation for new international students.
Students are automatically billed for health insurance upon enrollment every Fall and Spring semester and the payment is due to the college. Purchasing this plan is for your protection since health care in the U.S. can be very costly without insurance. There are no waivers for the LACCD insurance policy (LACCD Board Rule 2309.30). Even if you have another form of health insurance, you will still be required to purchase Relation Insurance/GeoBlue. The cost for a 6-month period of coverage is $708 USD.* Coverage periods:
Fall/Winter: August 15 - January 31
Spring/Summer: February 1 - August 14
Relation Contact Phone #: (800) 537-1777. Our representative is Denise.
