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 AETNA Student Health. 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.
Behavioral Health Resources
Counseling is encouraged for students experiencing anxiety, academic stress, relationship problems, loneliness, depression, alcohol and/or substance abuse, sexuality conflicts, test anxiety, concerns related to medical school adjustments or for any one who feels she/he needs additional support. Students may self-refer or may be identified by and referred to counseling support services by others, all in a confidential manner. Learn more about ICOM’s Behavioral Health Services.
