All international (non-US citizen) undergraduate students are automatically enrolled in the Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan as described in the Bard health brochure unless you obtain a waiver by presenting evidence of insurance coverage from one of three different commercial providers. (A list of the three different commercial providers are in the "Health Insurance Comparison Chart" document below).
