INTERNATIONAL STUDENT HEALTH, SAFETY & INSURANCE RESOURCES

Compass provides those participating in international education the information and resources needed to make educated decisions about health care and health insurance. The following content contains details about health & wellness in the U.S., how to best use the medical system and how to use insurance.

The editor thanks all in the field that have worked in this area, at the national, regional & institutional level. Their perspective and efforts provided much of the format for this content. Particular thanks is extended to those that have participated in NAFSA’s health advisory committees, especially Judith Green of NAFSA (the To Your Health student pamphlet series), John Rogers of the University of Iowa's International Office (the World in Balance video, the NAFSA online publication Optimizing Health Care In International Educational Exchange) and Gary Rhodes of the SAFETI Project. These works are identified herein and are strongly recommended resources.

It is Compass’s hope that this resource will also serve as a bridge to other work in the area. Educational institutions are welcome to link to this site, or draw from it, so that awareness of health, wellness, safety and insurance issues is developed further.
