You don’t have to search far to find a great health insurance plan—and it isn’t hard either. You can choose the plan that is right for you by going to WesSpeakStudent.com. Both international and domestic students are eligible for coverage, so you have nothing to worry about.

Which plan should I pick?

All students are automatically enrolled in the Balanced Plan, but you can pick and choose which plan best suits your needs. You can choose between the Balanced Plan, the Enhanced Dental Plan, and the Enhanced Drug Plan. You’ll be covered in a variety of areas like prescription drugs, dental, vision and extended health. But, that’s not all. You have coverage for travel and accident benefits as well!

When do I need to choose by?

Summer students, you’re in luck. We have extended the deadline to choose your plan and opt-in/opt-out to June 26 at 4 p.m. so you have plenty of time to finalize your decision.

Where can I get my benefits card?
