All international students at OSU and their dependents are required to have insurance coverage. Health insurance pays part of the cost of health care for you and your family if you are injured or get sick; however, you will usually have to pay some of the cost yourself. Have your insurance information saved in your phone, or bring your insurance card with you, every time you get medical or health services.
OSU has an excellent health insurance policy for students. Most international students use this plan, which is provided by Pacific Source Insurance Company. For more information, please go to this website.
All international students who are registered for a minimum of one (1) on-campus credit are required to enroll in the OSU Student Health Insurance plan. If you are an eligible international student, you will be automatically enrolled and charged for this plan.
It is because the medical and healthcare cost in the U.S. can be expensive, and without a health insurance, you might get into serious financial difficulty.

You will receive an email that has instructions about paying the OSU student health insurance fees after they arrive at OSU. Please follow the instructions and make sure to pay the fees by the due date. You can pay the fee by cash or check at the Cashier's Office in Kerr Administration (campus map).

If you brought a health insurance plan from your home home country, or if your sponsor provides you with a health insurance, you need to submit a waiver form and a summary of your insurance coverage to the OSU Insurance Office.
Your documents need to clearly show:
4. You must clearly show your coverage is equal to that of the OSU Student Health Insurance.
[IMPORTANT] If you have other health insurance plans and need to go see a doctor, please contact your health insurance company first and ask which clinics and hospitals in the area accept your health insurance. ALWAYS CARRY YOUR HEALTH INSURANCE CARD.
You can visit the Insurance office to ask questions or get help. They can tell you what your insurance will cover and how much you will have to pay yourself. They can also help you with a medical bill. Check out the OSU Insurance Office website as well.
