Medical Insurance

The cost of medical care in the United States is extremely expensive.  For this reason, international students enrolled at Community Colleges of Spokane (CCS) are required to either purchase the Community Colleges of Spokane insurance policy or provide proof of insurance coverage in English (if you purchase your own insurance).

Lewer Insurance Through CCS

We contract with Lewer Medical Insurance  which costs $213 per quarter for students.  This insurance is also available for spouses and children of students (at an additional cost).
  • Maximum benefit of $ 250,000 USD per qualified illness or injury
  • For students new to the U.S., coverage is for anywhere in the world except their home country
  • Medical evacuation back to home country - maximum benefit up to $50,000
  • Repatriation of remains - maximum benefit up to $25,000

Non-Lewer Medical Insurance

The college strongly recommends that a non-Lewer health insurance plan have at minimum the following benefits and that you bring an English translation of proof of coverage for the plan you purchased.

NOTE: If you purchase other health insurance instead of Lewer, you are required to bring Proof of Coverage in English.

  • Minimum benefit of $ 100,000 per illness
  • Coverage anywhere in the U.S.
  • Medical evacuation back to home country - maximum benefit of $50,000
  • Repatriation of remains - maximum benefit of up to $25,000
