Effective Fall 2017 Term: Important updates to the UH-System policy regarding health insurance requirements for international students

International Students with “Non-F” or “Non-J” visa status will no longer be required to be covered under the UHS Student Health Insurance Plan or have equivalent health insurance coverage. The university WILL NOT add the health insurance charge to your university financial account and will not automatically enroll you in the Student Health Insurance Plan.

International students with “F” or “J” visa status are required to be covered under the UHS Student Health Insurance Plan or have equivalent health insurance coverage, regardless of the number of credit hours taken.  At the time of registration, the student will automatically be enrolled in the mandatory UHS-endorsed Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) and will be charged for the coverage period on their student financial account.
