LewerMark Student Insurance

The University of Central Arkansas strives to provide affordable, quality health insurance for all international students. Our provider, LewerMark Student Insurance, serves the health insurance needs of thousands of international students in Arkansas and across the United States. Upon arriving at UCA all international students are enrolled in the LewerMark insurance plan. Students are automatically re-enrolled in the LewerMark plan each semester they are either enrolled in classes or living in UCA housing. The enrollment periods are:

  • Fall Semester: August 1-December 31
  • Spring Semester: January 1-July 31

International Insurance Fee

The insurance fee for each of the above periods will be placed on students’ accounts after they have registered for classes for the appropriate semester, and will need to be paid along with the rest of the students’ tuition and fees. For the 2020-2021 academic year, the monthly premium is $111.48. This means that the fee amount for the Fall will be $557.40. The fee for the Spring semester will include summer and be $780.36.
