International student?

Don't forget your health insurance.

New York City is a great place to go to school. There is so much to see and do when you are not in class or studying. But the cost of medical care can spoil things fast if you are not covered. Anyone can have an accident or get sick. And, you may need prescription drugs and therapy visits to stay well.

MetroPlusHealth has high quality, low-cost health coverage for everyone. Any of the plans below may work well for students like you.

TIP: If you are in NYC as a student, see if your college offers health insurance. At some schools, all students must join a school-sponsored plan.

Essential Plan

No monthly premiums

● Preventive care, emergency care, prescription drugs, mental health, and more

● Free dental and vision


Wide variety of plans

● Easy to adjust with major life changes

● Tax credits for lowered costs

Remember, your health matters. The City is an expensive place. An Emergency Room visit might cost $1,688 or more,* without coverage. So, let’s get you set up.
