The health care system in the United States is among the best in the world, but visiting the doctor can be very expensive. The International English Center wants students to study without worrying about health care costs. Therefore, the university and the IEC requires all full-time students to have a comprehensive health insurance policy during their time at the university. Health insurance is a system where the student buys a policy from an insurance company and the insurance company promises to pay some or all of the costs for the student’s medical care.

In addition, Colorado State Law requires all University of Colorado students to submit proof of immunization and Tuberculosis (TB) testing. This is a mandatory requirement for all college students born on or after January 1, 1957.

See below for additional health care and medical information, as well as instructions on how to submit proof of health insurance coverage, immunization, and testing.
