U. S. Health Insurance
Cadets are required to carry student health insurance for all semesters they are present on campus. Proof of insurance is required for admission, readmission, and continuation as a cadet. Cadets must notify the Infirmary immediately of any changes in insurance providers or coverage. Adequate insurance coverage for hospitalization, emergency care, ambulance transportation, specialty medical and surgical care is mandatory.
Many cadets are covered under parental medical insurance plans. For military families covered by TRICARE, cadets must be enrolled under TRICARE STANDARD (not PRIME) unless the family lives in the Charleston area. This allows cadets to skip evaluation and referral by the Primary Care Manager (at home base) for supplemental medical services in Charleston.
