Student Health Center and Medical/Hospital Insurance
Foundations students are allowed to use the main campus Student Health Center, on the ground floor level of the Darnell Building. You can call the appointment number at 202-687-2200. You will need to pay for the appointment and then you can submit the bill to your insurance company. Ask about the cost when you make an appointment. Also, you will need to bring your GOCard for identification.
Medical/Hospital Insurance: Medical care in the U.S. is not state-subsidized and can be costly. An initial visit to a physician may cost $100.00, one visit to the emergency room can cost several thousand dollars, and charges for laboratory fees and prescription medicine are extra.
Georgetown's health insurance policy for the 2012-2013 academic year begins August 15, 2012. Students planning to enroll in our policy need to arrange short-term "travel health" coverage until your academic year policy begins. Short-term health insurance policies students have used in the past include those arranged through STA (statravel.com), Harbour Group (hginsurance.com) or International Students Organization (isoa.org; email: email@example.com); you can find other providers on the world-wide-web or through a travel agency.
Neither Foundations of American Law nor Georgetown University will assume financial responsibility for medical or hospital bills.
Almost all students either bring or purchase laptop computers while they are doing their LL.M. Georgetown Law's Information Systems Technology (IST) Department has prepared useful information that may assist you in planning computer use.
During Foundations, students should be focused on listening and participating in class to adjust to the U.S. classroom experience and the Socratic method, so we recommend that you not use your laptop during the first week. As the program progresses, some students prefer to bring their computers to class to take notes, as they will do in their LL.M. classes during the academic year.
