If you purchased the insurance from Insurance for College Students (IFCS), then you may visit their website at www.ifcs.us and select College of Central Florida from the drop down menu. Once on the CF page, you can find providers, print out a new card, see your benefits, and find lots of additional information. If you have any questions about the insurance and cannot find the answer on the company's website, feel free to contact the company by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 561.852.3851 or toll-free 800.971.3921.
If you graduate or transfer to a different school in December, then you can request a partial refund of the insurance premium. You will need to write a letter to the insurance company explaining why you are leaving and update your contact information in case they need to contact you with any questions. You will also need to notify the Office of International Student Services. The Office of International Student Services will approve the refund and notify IFCS. In general, the refund will be made in the same manner the premium was paid. If the credit card you used to submit the payment is no longer valid, please let the insurance company know.
