Health Insurance is mandatory for all international students (F-1 and J-1), J-1 Scholars, J-1 Trainees, and their J-2 and F-2 dependents. This insurance must include sickness, accident, medical evacuation, and repatriation insurance in effect for the duration of their stay in the US. It is strongly recommended that all international employees carry health insurance. Insurance coverage should be secured prior to arrival in the United States. Learn more at Student Health Services and Health Insurance for International Students.
