All international students are required to have adequate health insurance for the duration of their academic program at Augsburg University and every day you are in the United States as an international student. Students must be enrolled in a health insurance plan for their entire stay in the U.S., including school break periods. We encourage all students to carry their health insurance card and be aware of your options if you get sick or in case of emergency.
GeoBlue Health Insurance
Augsburg provides health insurance for F-1 international students through GeoBlue – this is a Blue Cross Blue Shield Network. Find out specific information about the plan on their online portal. If you are a GeoBlue member, you can download the app or request a card in the following ways:
