Per the health insurance policy, all F-1 students are covered by Georgetown Collegeâ€™s group F-1 health insurance plan. This allows you to have medical insurance coverage from the moment you arrive in the United States. Should you require medical care, you will be covered. For more detailed information about your medical insurance please contact International Programs (Jason_Snider@georgetowncollege.edu).
It is important to know that medical care in the U.S. can be very expensive. If you do not feel well, you should visit the Student Health Center – this is free to all students. Should you not feel well and the Student Health Center is closed, an Urgent Treatment Clinic is typically your best option. If you have an emergency or need immediate medical care you should go to the Emergency Room (ER) – the emergency number in the U.S. is 911; it can be dialed from any phone free of charge.
You will need to complete the Student Health Immunization Form and the Student Health Medical Questionnaire, both of which can be found here: http://wordpress.georgetowncollege.edu/studentwellness/forms/. Note that the Student Health Immunization Form must be completed by your doctor. Please have these forms ready to turn in when you arrive on campus. If you have questions about these forms, please contact Dr. Lloyd Clark (Lloyd_Clark@georgetowncollege.edu). Note: Georgetown College does not require any immunizations; however, a record of any immunizations you have received must be kept on file.
