All Ferris State University international students who are in the US are required to carry health insurance during terms they are enrolled and present in the US. GeoBlue is the approved health insurance of Ferris State University, and all international students are automatically enrolled in its plan when they are enrolled and determined to be present in the US. The GeoBlue plan for international students at Ferris State University only provides coverage in the United States.
Effective August 1, 2022, students will no longer be able to opt out of the GeoBlue policy by purchasing or providing a different insurance policy. Students will automatically be enrolled in the GeoBlue plan and the premium will be charged to their student accounts. Of the amount charged to student accounts each semester, 100% goes toward the insurance premium with GeoBlue. Ferris does not collect any fees or any part of the premium.
GeoBlue insurance cards will be emailed to students and/or mailed to their physical address by GeoBlue. If students do not receive their insurance card within three weeks of the beginning of the semester, they should contact the Office of International Education.
