UCLA Extension

Medical Insurance

American Language Center (ALC)

Injury and Sickness Insurance is included in the American Language Center’s student services fees. This insurance allows you to visit a hospital or clinic if you need medical attention due to an injury or sickness while studying at the ALC. On the first day of your program, the ALC will give you an insurance identification card and provide more detailed information on your insurance coverage. Permanent residents of the United States will not be eligible for this insurance.

For more information, go to renstudent.com/extension, and select UC Extension-International for the year that you will be enrolled in the program. Brochures are available in a variety of languages.

Certificate Programs

Certificate program students will pay a separate fee each quarter for health insurance which must be maintained throughout your time in the U.S., including any post completion training employment. The Preferred Provider Policy (PPO) policy underwritten by Anthem-Blue Cross provides a large pool of physicians from which to choose and access to UCLA’s world class hospitals and clinics on the UCLA campus and in Santa Monica.

View the policy in detail by going to http://4studenthealth.ascensionins.com. Under Find Your School, select University of California Los Angeles, then International Student Insurance Plan-Extension-GeoBlue.

It is recommended that you purchase the insurance at least 2 weeks in advance of your current quarter coverage expiry date as it can take 10-14 days for the new insurance coverage to appear in your GeoBlue Account. You can purchase the insurance on our website here.
