At Touro GST we strive to provide a learning environment that helps our students succeeed. To enable each student to make the best of their learing, we've provided easy access to important information.
Health Insurance Coverage for Touro Students
Many students come to Touro already covered by their own private Medical Insurance. However, for those students who require medical coverage and reside in New York State (not New Jersey), it is available through United HealthCare Community Plan (not affiliated with Touro).
Should you have additional questions, please contact our International Student Coordinator, David Luk at (212) 463-0400 x 55644.
Student health and wellness are important for academic success. While the Touro Graduate School of Technology does not offer on-campus mental health services, the GST Wellness Coordinator is available to help students find affordable community treatment for personal, emotional, or substance abuse problems so that they may benefit fully from their academic experience. The Wellness Coordinator may be reached at WellnessGST@touro.edu. When contacting the Wellness Coordinator, be sure to use your Touro email address.
