Insurance Requirement for F-1 Status Students
City College of San Francisco international students are required to maintain minimum essential health insurance coverage. The college has mandated that F-1 visa students must fulfill these requirements by enrolling in the coverage chosen by the college for our international students. All City College of San Francisco international students who are here on an F-1 visa are therefore required to purchase health insurance through Relation Insurance with Aetna. This policy provides excellent medical coverage at a competitive price. Once you have enrolled in your health insurance for the term, you will be able to choose your doctor(s) from a large number of health care providers in the San Francisco and Bay Area communities who are part of the Aetna network. The student plan is called "Passport to Healthcare Primary PPO". This insurance is mandatory for all F-1 international students. The deadline to purchase this insurance is the last day to add classes for the Fall and Spring terms.
