Health Insurance

All international students entering Northwest College on an F-1 student visa will be covered under our insurance policy with Cultural Insurance International. This insurance policy is mandatory and students cannot waive the insurance. The cost of the insurance will be added to your semester tuition bill. 

At the beginning of each semester you will receive an email from CISI with a PDF attachment of your insurance card. You must print this card and keep it with you at all times. You will need to show proof of your insurance card anytime you visit a doctor or the hospital.

If you did not receive an email from CISI or can't access your CISI insurance card, stop by OIP. We will make sure to get you a copy.

What do I do if I have to go to a doctor and/or the hospital

You will be required to pay for medical services but the CISI insurance policy will reimburse you once you complete a CISI Claim Form (The policy number is 14 STI00992300).

Mail all the receipts and claim form to:

Cultural Insurance Services International
River Plaza, 9 West Broad Street
Stamford, CT 06902-3788 

You can also contact CISI at (203) 399-5130 or at 

Some things to keep in mind when working with an insurance company:

  • Always keep your receipts and keep them organized
  • Make a copy of your receipts and your completed claim form before sending it to the insurance form
  • Ask OIP if you can't understand the receipts or if you need help filing a claim
