Summer Institute Health Insurance Coverage

Fordham Law strongly recommends that all Summer Institute participants arrange for health insurance coverage for their time in the United States.  Participants are encouraged to check with their current provider to see if coverage extends to their stay in New York.

Participants who are not covered are strongly urged to purchase insurance.  Please note that participants are not automatically covered by Fordham University's health insurance, and may be held liable for any emergency medical expenses they incur during their time in the United States.

International participants are invited to purchase basic health insurance coverage offered through Collegiate Insurance Resources via Fordham University's Office for International Services.  To enroll, please download the enrollment form and submit it, with payment, directly to Collegiate Insurance Resources.  For information on benefits and coverage, participants should contact Malinda Townsend at 610-537-9461.

Please note that this coverage is only available to international, or "non-immigrant" students.  This coverage is not available to U.S. citizens, resident aliens, or permanent residents.

This insurance policy covers participants 24 hours a day from July 7 to July 25, 2014, anywhere in the United States.  The total cost for coverage is $62.00.
