FIU Global First Year (FIU Global) is pleased to announce that for the 2022-2023 Academic Year we have teamed up with Wellfleet Student and University Health Plans (UHP) to provide health insurance coverage for our students. The FIU Global First Year (FIU Global) Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) provides substantial benefits for covered medical expenses at a reasonable cost.
All FIU Global students are required to enroll in the FIU Global SHIP. Therefore, students are automatically enrolled and no action is necessary.
The FIU Global First Year (FIU Global) SHIP is provided by Wellfleet Student. We encourage you to review the coverage by selecting the "Benefit Information” tab in the navigation menu on the left-hand side of this page. Below are some of the highlights of the insurance plan.
Please note, health insurance in the United States is different than in other countries. We urge you to review the "Understanding US Health Insurance" guide located in the navigation menu on the left-hand side of this page.
