The University of Hawai'i encourages students to think about their health insurance needs. Lack of adequate insurance coverage may be financially devastating in the event of a major illness or accident. Medical costs can be a burden even in the case of a minor illness. Consequently, the purchase of medical insurance should not be considered "extra," but rather should be viewed as a cost of daily living, in the same way as housing, food and transportation. Please be aware that medical insurance is considered a legitimate cost of education for purposes of financial aid and should be listed on your financial aid application.
