Opting out may result in those expenses not being covered by either program.
  • It is the student's responsibility to renew their MSI card and submit a new copy of the card to the Benefits Plan Office. Students whose MSI coverage is not renewed or who fail to update the Benefits Plan Office with their new MSI card will be re-enrolled in the International Medical Plan Plan and the fees will be added to your student account.
  • NO EXCEPTIONS will be made if a renewed MSI card is not received on time. It is the student's responsibility to pay the plan's mandatory fees, should they not submit the MSI card to the Benefits Plan Office.
