All students at ELI are required to have health insurance coverage that meets our standards. The insurance plan that we recommend and purchase for our students is the Silver Plan from ISO Insurance. More information about this plan and the associated fees can be found here:

If you don’t want to enroll in the recommended insurance plan or have already enrolled in another insurance plan, you can use them as long as the plan meets our standards. Please note: Health insurance is not an option—it is a requirement.
