Health Insurance

Good health is a necessary component of academic success. To help maintain student health, Lawrence University requires all students to carry health insurance. This requirement may help prevent student's academic progress from being interrupted, halted, or seriously impacted if they become ill or injured. Students are asked to provide a copy of their current insurance card to Wellness Services.

CHECK WITH YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY TO VERIFY YOU HAVE COVERAGE IN THE APPLETON AREA.

This requirement can be meet one of two ways:

  • Students can purchase their own insurance, either as an individual or as a dependent on your parent or guardian's health insurance policy; or
  • Students can purchase the Lawrence University Insurance Plan available through Wellfleet Health Insurance.

Partnering Insurance Company

Lawrence University works closely with a servicing agent that provides student health insurance plans. Our international student and domestic student health insurance plans are ACA compliant and have athletic coverage. Please see  Wellfleet Health Insurance website for information regarding enrollment and plan coverage.


International Student Health Insurance

International students are considered non-citizen visa holders (typically F-1 and J-1 visas). All international students will be automatically enrolled in Lawrence's student insurance plan. If you choose not to use this insurance plan, students must complete a waiver with International Student Services and have proof of health insurance coverage. Please refer to the International Student Health page for more information. If international students have any questions about insurance, please contact our Associate Dean of Students for International Student Services, Leah McSorley.

Domestic Student Health Insurance

Domestic students are considered students that are US citizens. This includes students with dual citizenship. Domestic students are not automatically enrolled in an insurance plan. Domestic students interested in the enrolling in the student insurance should enroll directly through the servicing agent, Wellfleet Health Insurance. More information about other insurance plans can be found at HealthCare.gov.
