If students are currently covered by health insurance, they should check with the carrier to see what arrangements need to be made so coverage continues while at college. All students should carry health insurance cards with them. Participation in the University of Wisconsin System Student Health Insurance Plan (see below) is required for international students. Additional coverage must be purchased for Varsity Athletic coverage, for both domestic and international students. Please see below for additional information.
From UW-River Falls Risk Management web page: "UWRF does not provide any type of compensation for injuries that occur on campus. Each student and visitor is expected to have their own health insurance to cover personal medical costs."
Information on the annual insurance plan for UWRF students (including information about the provider network) is available at https://www.gallagherkoster.com/uwisystem
Please note that for domestic students, this policy has a $100,000 per condition per policy year limit, has a $300 per individual policy year deductible, but does have a $5,000 for PPO providers and $10,000 for non-PPO providers limit per policy year on out-of-pocket expenses for the student.
