If you will be a full-time salaried employee at NYU, you will most likely receive health insurance benefits through NYU and will be required to pay a monthly premium for that insurance out of your paycheck. If you are not sure whether you will receive health insurance through NYU, consult with your department.
If you are part-time and not eligible for health insurance through NYU, a list of private health insurance providers can be found through NAFSA's Resource Library. Due to the high cost of healthcare in the U.S., we strongly advise all scholars and their family members to have health insurance for their duration of stay in the U.S.
When looking for a doctor, it's always helpful to ask people you know for recommendations. Possibly, someone in your department at NYU will be able to recommend someone, or a friend who has visited or lived in the city may know of one. Also, the NYU Medical Center of NYU's School of Medicine is affiliated with a number of doctors and hospitals in the city.
NOTE: NYU's University Health Center on Broadway at the Washington Square campus is primarily a resource for students. Full-time employees can use the center at times for immunization shots or vision care.
