All students that have a J or F visa type will automatically be charged for the Blue Cross/Blue Shield Montana Student Health Insurance Fee whether or not you refuse the student insurance. The 'BCBSMT Insurance Fee' AND the associated 'Health Service Fee' will be removed from your registration bill ONLY when written proof of another insurance coverage (in English) is presented to Dawn Camara-Clark in the Curry Health Center.
