Student Medical Insurance
All F-1 and J-1 international students attending on a Form I-20 or DS-2019 endorsed by ECC will be offered comprehensive medical insurance through a group health insurance plan presented by LewerMark. The LewerMark international student insurance medical plan protects students while they are in school and maintaining their non-immigrant visa status during their studies in the U.S. Enrollment in the plan is mandatory except in rare exceptions (refer to Administrative Procedure 4.202). Visit lewermark.com/elgin for information about the plan, including the plan summary and benefits.
Like all insurance plans, you will be covered under the parameters outlined in the plan brochure, so long as your premiums and any deductibles and copays are met/paid. Please note that you will automatically be enrolled in the plan prior to the start of each semester that you study at ECC, and the charges will be reflected in your ECC student account. Payment is due by April 1 for the fall semester, and November 1 for the spring and summer semesters.
