Health Insurance Information

Health care costs in the United States are extremely expensive.  It is not uncommon for doctor's visits with lab work, x-rays and medication to reach into the hundreds or even thousands of dollars.  Grossmont College STRONGLY recommends that its students have medical insurance which will cover these costs.  Many students choose to purchase such insurance from their home countries.  Other students purchase medical insurance after their arrival to the U.S. 

An international student insurance plan, which can help pay for medical bills related to injury or illness, is available in the Grossmont College Health Services office.  To view a description of this plan on-line, go to, click onto the "International Plans" tab and select "California," then select Grossmont College. On the left side, click onto "2012-2013 Brochure" for details on the plan's coverages and limitations.  This insurance plan costs $1360 per year.
