U-M International Student/Scholar Health Insurance Requirement and Enrollment Process

Requirements

If you are an F-1 or J-1 student or J-1 visiting scholar and your Form I-20 or Form DS-2019 was issued by the University of Michigan (Dearborn), you must have health insurance that meets U-M requirements for yourself and any accompanying F-2 or J-2 dependents during the entire time you are a F-1 or J-1 student or scholar at the University of Michigan. In order to meet U-M requirements, your health insurance must, in the judgment of the University, provide coverage that is at least comparable to the coverage provided by the U-M International Student/Scholar Health Insurance Plan.

Enrollment Process

If your Form I-20 or DS-2019 was issued by the University of Michigan (Dearborn), you will automatically be enrolled in the U-M International Student/Scholar Health Insurance Plan through the end of your date on your Form I-20 or DS-2019 so that you can be certain that you are covered by adequate health insurance. If you are or will be eligible for health insurance benefits administered by the U-M Benefits Office, or if you would like to use another insurance coverage instead of the U-M International Student/Scholar Health Insurance Plan, please refer to Obtaining an Insurance Requirement Waiver
