Student Health Insurance

TCU requires all students to have health insurance.  All IEP students carry Lewermark Student Medical Insurance at a monthly cost of $120.52. (TCU students use the TCU Health Center, unless referred to a hospital or specialist by a TCU Health Center physician. Click here to see hospitals in the Lewer Insurance Network.)

**Medical insurance rates may vary according to the number of billing days.  All students must have insurance while in the US, including during vacations and holidays. Insurance required varies by days between session beginnings and endings.
