Navigating the US Health System

The United States does not have a uniform health system and has no universal healthcare coverage. Navigating the US health system can be challenging. All students are encouraged to first seek care from Student Health and Wellness Center on campus.

All international Graduate Assistants should review the Health Insurance and Wellness module on J1/F1 Student Orientation in Canvas to know more information about health insurance and health care options.

UWM’s Office of Human Resources also maintains a page dedicated to Health Insurance for Foreign Nationals on its website.
