ICOM Health Insurance Portal
All ICOM students are required to have health insurance coverage throughout all four years of medical school. Before registration and the beginning of each academic year, all students must provide proof of health insurance.
Students may have insurance through a variety of options including insurance through parents, spouses, or health exchanges. To ensure students have access to a comprehensive plan, ICOM offers a student health insurance plan through National Guardian Life Insurance. All students must enroll in the student sponsored health plan or provide proof of other acceptable health coverage. Dependents are also eligible to be enrolled in the Student Health Plan.
The ICOM Sonis connects students, faculty, and administrators through a centralized database. The system allows students to apply online, register for courses, pay bills, conduct degree audits—and more—at any time, from any device.
