Students at CFA have the choice of receiving health care services from a variety of providers. We highly recommend a health insurance policy during your training at CFA in the event you get sick or injured. You may use health insurance from your home country. Please speak to your insurance representative to find out about your coverage.
Although we are not affiliated with any healthcare insurance providers, the following insurance options are available for students whose healthcare coverage does not cover international providers.
Additionally, upon your arrival at CFA, we have highly competent medical professionals who can perform your FAA physical examination. To learn more about medical facilities and services available, please visit:
