If you are an international student or postdoctoral fellow, you are obligated to purchase a medical insurance policy as a pre-condition to starting studies or training at the Weizmann Institute. The Feinberg Graduate School does not direct international students and postdoctoral fellows to purchase a policy from a particular insurance company or agent. However, it is mandatory to purchase a policy with terms and conditions similar to those offered by the Prestige Policy set by the Harel Insurance Company.
All international students are entitled to reimbursement of up to $840 of the annual cost of purchasing a medical insurance policy for themselves. This reimbursement is in the form of 12 equal monthly additions to the fellowship.
