Welcome to the Peralta International Student Health Insurance Program

All international students will be automatically enrolled in the Peralta Health Insurance Program through provider GeoBlue.

Upon enrollment, you will find an “International Student Health Insurance Fee” among your other fees for tuition such as AC Transit, campus use fee, etc.

Now that health insurance is a requirement for all students, please contact your insurance provider to cancel your current plan. Make sure the final date of coverage is no later than 12/31/2016 to prevent double coverage.

The current fee is $114.50 per month, totaling $572.50 for the fall semester, $801.50 for the spring /summer session, and $229 for the summer session (new students only).

If you need a letter of support from our office to cancel your current health insurance coverage and request a refund, we will gladly assist you. Please contact Matthew Jones at mjones2@peralta.edu for a support letter.
