International Student Health Insurance Updates (F-1 & J-1)

ALL INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN HEALTH INSURANCE THROUGHOUT THE DURATION OF THE I-20/DS-2019.

To do so, the student must either purchase Student Blue — the University mandatory hard waiver plan — or waive out of the Student Blue plan by showing proof of an alternative plan that meets a set of required criteria.

The deadline to waive out of the Student Blue plan is September 10. For Fall 2015, Student Blue has made some important changes, including that it will no longer offer coverage options for dependents. Please review and prepare for these changes in advance of the start of Fall semester to make sure you are maintaining continual coverage for yourselves and your dependents.
