INSURANCE
All students are required to have health insurance coverage. Under the federal government’s health care law (the Patient Protection and  Affordable Care Act), you must have a plan that qualifies as minimum essential coverage or pay a fee on your next federal tax return. There is no special student exception to the federal requirement to have health insurance. CIU does not provide a student health insurance; the student is responsible to secure his or her own coverage.
