All VMI cadets should maintain their own private health insurance coverage. Many cadets are covered by their parent’s policies, but some cadets arrive at VMI with little or no coverage of any type.

For cadets who do not have medical insurance coverage, there are a number of options available to purchase student health insurance privately from third-party companies at reasonable costs. If you have changes in your health insurance coverage, please print and complete the Cadet Health Insurance Form.  Please email or mail the completed form along with a clear copy of both sides of your current health insurance card to the Infirmary.

Health insurance is a required fee for all international cadets and will be charged to the cadet’s account. Please contact the Office of International Programs for specific coverage information.

Because of the physical rigors of the VMI system, VMI provides each cadet with accident coverage.  This coverage is for accidents only (does not cover illness) during VMI sanctioned, supervised activities, and covers treatment costs up to a maximum of $5,000 per occurrence.  If treatment costs from an accident exceed $5,000, payment of the excess becomes the responsibility of the cadet.  This policy is secondary to any private insurance the cadet may have.

For more information about insurance at VMI or to complete a claim form, please contact Dreama Fox, VMI Insurance Coordinator at or 540-464-7218.

The VMI Athletic Department provides a supplemental insurance policy that covers NCAA athletic injuries occurring during an official practice or competition.
