Insurance Information

Lane requires international students to have health insurance because of the high cost of going to the hospital or doctor in the USA. Just one visit to the hospital can cost you a whole year's tuition and fees! If you get sick, we want you to know that you can easily see a doctor. All international students are required to buy health insurance unless they have an equivalent plan.

You are covered by LewerMark-International Student Insurance:

LewerMark Insurance Group - Find doctors, claim information and much more.

If you're a new student, you will set up your portal during orientation. Continuing students can set up their portal online. If you need help stop by the international office. Please be aware that at any time you have a valid I-20 from Lane, including vacation terms in the USA, you are required to purchase Lane's health insurance plan unless you have an approved alternate plan. Failure to do so will result in termination of your I-20.

See one of our international advisors in 11/235 or email us at if you have any health insurance questions. For more information about the insurance visit the LewerMark website.

Providing Proof of Own Insurance:

Only health insurance policies from your home country, your government sponsor, or covered as a dependent by your parents or spouse employed in the United States are allowed. Please submit your insurance waiver online before 12:00 pm on Friday before the term starts with a copy of your private insurance coverage. Sponsored students must provide insurance proof by this same deadline as well. Private policies must show equivalent coverage (equal or better) to Lane's policy requirements. For more information, please read the Health Insurance Requirements. Students intending to purchase additional coverage for a spouse or dependents must contact LewerMark directly. If you have any questions about insurance or need help please see one of our international advisors in 11/235 or email us at
