All students are highly recommended to have appropriate and adequate health insurance coverage. No plan is sponsored or endorsed by the university. A list of potential insurance providers is available at Healthcare.gov. Again, Fontbonne is not affiliated with these providers and is simply providing these links as a courtesy for students and their families to consider as potential options.
All students participating in intercollegiate athletics must verify to the Athletic Department that they have adequate medical insurance and are in sound physical condition. A student’s physical condition will be determined by the team physician or designee prior to competition through a physical examination. Ongoing observation will be monitored by the coaching staff, athletic training staff and team physician. Insurance verification needs to be documented. The university does not carry primary medical insurance on any student. Additionally, any student participating in intercollege athletics must complete the necessary paperwork in order to practice or compete. Furthermore, every student must be declared academically and athletically eligible by standards set by Fontbonne University and the NCAA.
All international students accepted for study at Fontbonne University are required to carry medical/health insurance by an American insurance company selected by Fontbonne University. Students are automatically enrolled in the insurance plan upon enrollment at the university. Insurance for the 2023-2024 year is provided by GeoBlue.
Exemption: Students who already have alternative U.S. insurance coverage may be exempt. Proof of coverage must be submitted within the first two weeks of arrival to Fontbonne and must be resubmitted on a yearly basis if approved for exemption. Failure to do so will result in the student being automatically enrolled in the university sponsored insurance program.
