Medical Insurance Information for the International Student

Waldorf University is extremely interested in making your academic and personal experience meaningful and successful during your time here. Your health and wellness are key components of that experience.

All Waldorf University international students are required to take part in the health insurance plan offered by Waldorf University or waive off with proof of adequate coverage. The health insurance plan offered by Waldorf is designed specifically for college students. As a full time international student, you will be automatically enrolled in this plan; there are no extra documents you need to send to apply. We will take care of that for you.

If you already have health insurance and want to investigate the possibility of it being adequate to waive off the offered plan, here are some point to consider:

  • Does the plan must have a United States claims mailing address? -- US providers only file claims to US addresses
  • Does the plan work with providers in the Forest City, IA area?  Not just ER and /or Urgent Care but for all providers, clinics, physical therapy, etc.
  • Does the plan cover illnesses and injuries?

If you can answer yes to the above questions, and want to waive off the offered plan, please send a copy of the front and back of your insurance card to Waldorf’s Student Insurance Coordinator at or fax 641.585.8144.

The Student Insurance Coordinator will review your plan and notify you if it is adequate to waive. Submitting your insurance card is not a guarantee of a waiver.
