Health and Wellness

As healthcare providers, it is very important that our students take care of their own health first. ACTCM offers a variety of wellness resources. Students receive discounted treatments and services at our clinics, including acupuncture, herbs, massage, and mental health counseling. Qigong classes and workshops are also held regularly and are open to both students and the public. 

Student Health Insurance

We offer insurance through UnitedHealthcare, a national Preferred Provider Organization (PPO), which provides students with access to In-Network and Out-of-Network providers while at school, home or during travel. 

Rates and detailed plan benefits are posted through the Gallagher Student Health Website. Please visit for more information. Options are also available for spouse and child add on.

CIIS requires all full-time students to have adequate health insurance as a condition of enrollment. All full time-students, residing in the state of California, will be required to purchase the UnitedHealthcare Plan unless proof of comparable insurance is provided during the waiver and enrollment period.

If you have questions about Student Health Insurance, please contact the Office of Student Affairs.
