  • Insurance

    All J-1 Visiting Scholars, and their dependents, will be automatically enrolled in UW-L's International Student/Scholar health insurance plan for the duration of their stay at UW-L. This insurance is provided through Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI) and meets/exceeds all minimum health insurance requirements set forth by the U.S. State Department for all J visa holders.



    Visiting Scholars and their dependents are not able to use the Student Health Center.  Scholars are encouraged to use medical facilities that are part of CISI's network to reduce out of pocket expenses. 

    In-network Providers List

    Insurance cards and policy information will be sent via email directly to visiting scholars. Each time a visiting scholar and/or a dependent visits a medical facility, a medical claim forms needs to be prepared by the scholar and submitted to CISI.

    Visiting scholars are responsible for all medical costs not covered by insurance.

    For information on the cost of this insurance, please contact Diane Sasaki, International Student & Scholar Coordinator, at dsasaki@uwlax.edu
