Health Services & Insurance

Health Services

Our Student Health Center is located on campus and is open to all International students for medical consultations and help. This does not replace the need for medical insurance.

Health Insurance

Medical care in the United States is good but extremely costly. Proof of comprehensive health insurance is mandatory while attending Las Positas College.  Your plan must:

  • include medical coverage for accidents and illnesses
  • include repatriation
  • include medical evacuation, and
  • provide coverage for the entire semester(s) that you are studying.

We also recommed that you purchase a health insurance policy that:

  • provides a minimum of $250,000 for each accident or illness
  • has a deductible of $100 or less, and
  • covers at least 75% of hospital and medical costs.

If you do not have health insurance, you must purchase it and present evidence of continuous medical insurance coverage to the International Student Program office before the end of the second week of classes. The International Student Program Office staff will be happy to assist you by recommending several Insurance plans.
