Medical care in the USA is expensive, and the ELI’s medical insurance helps to pay for a part of students’ healthcare and medical expenses. The insurance cost will be included on your ELI session bill.



All students are required to purchase the ELI’s health insurance plan.

Sponsored students: Students who have a scholarship from their government (with scholarships that include a health insurance plan) do not need to buy ELI insurance. If you are not sure if your government scholarship has a health insurance plan, contact

Special note: American insurance plans do NOT cover illnesses or medical needs you developed before coming here (eg: diabetes, pregnancy, emphysema). These are called “pre-existing conditions.”
