How do I enroll?

Every inbound student will receive a special link by email for enrollment. A credit card payment is required. Insurance materials are e-mailed back to the participant instantly.

How can I pay for the insurance?

Insurance payment is due in full at the time of enrollment with Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. 

CISI-Bolduc encourages students inbound to the United States to contact their credit card company or bank prior to purchasing the insurance via credit card due to a heightened risk of international credit card fraud. Such security measures mean that some unusual transactions may be denied.

How long does it take for you to process my insurance application?

Complete application and payment must be received prior to receiving necessary paperwork for your departure.

Once I send my application and payment, will I get anything back to confirm I have insurance?

Once we receive your completed application and payment your insurance enrollment will be processed instantly.

When does my insurance coverage begin?

Upon enrollment, you will receive an email confirmation which will contain your insurance ID card, policy brochure, claim form and consulate letter.  Your policy will start on the day of departure and will expire once you return to your home country.
