Health at UC

The international exchange student must come to Chile with Medical Insurance.

Given the global pandemic due to COVID, the Government of Chile requires that all international exchange students have health insurance that must include medical assistance for at least USD 30,000.

Also our university requests to have:

  • Explicit COVID-19 coverage 
  • Health and funeral repatriation services

You can check out some referral options here.


Besides, the university has a student healthcare system available to all international exchange students which covers different medical specialties as well as dental and psychological coverage. As a student you will have to pay the costs at the Student Healthcare offices located in Campus San Joaquin and then request the reimbursement to the International Health Insurance  Company you got before coming to Chile.
