The CIA Texas campus in San Antonio does not provide on-campus medical services. Students should report all injuries to their chef instructor and the kitchen manager at the time of the injury. First aid kits are available in all kitchens for minor injuries. Emergency services (911) will be called should a student need transportation to a hospital for treatment. The cost of non-routine treatment, off-campus doctor visits, prescriptions, medications, and vaccines will be the student responsibility.
The CIA has incorporated a mandatory annual student health insurance plan through United Health Care beginning September 1, 2022. The plan is offered to all domestic and international fulltime students. Domestic students may waive out of the health insurance plan by providing proof of current, comparable health insurance coverage through a family or individual plan. International students are not eligible to opt out and must enroll in the plan offered by the CIA. Cost of insurance for students starting in the spring or summer semester will be pro-rated accordingly. For more details about coverage and enrollment, please contact Haylor, Freyer, & Coon at 866-535-0456 or email email@example.com.
Students taking the Global Cuisines and Cultures trip are encouraged to review international travel insurance options.
