Health care costs in the United States are extremely high, which is why SAIC requires that all full-time students have adequate health insurance. Students and in F-1 status are required to enroll in SAIC's health insurance plan. If you already have health insurance, you may apply for a waiver of the SAIC insurance by completing the Health Insurance Waiver process in the SAIC Portal. The deadline for waiving SAIC insurance is normally the last day of add/drop (see Academic Calendar).

SAIC insurance will be automatically billed in addition to your tuition and fees. Your dependents (a spouse or children) can obtain coverage once they arrive in the United States.
