Health insurance coverage is mandatory for all individuals in F-1, J-1 or J-2 status whose I-20 or DS-2019 is issued by the University of Kansas. UnitedHealthcare’s StudentResources insurance coverage is automatically included on all F-1 and J-1 students’ Bursar’s accounts, when the student enrolls in classes. Please reference the Payment Options page for information on the costs associated with this insurance plan.
Students may choose to use an alternative insurance plan, and receive a waiver of the KU plan, as long as their insurance meets or exceeds the Kansas Board of Regents requirements. To receive a waiver, students must complete the waiver process on or before the first day of classes, for a given term. If the Insurance Coordinator determines an alternative plan meets the KBOR requirements, the financial charge for the plan will be removed from the student’s Bursar’s account.
The intent of these insurance requirements is for all international students to have excellent, continuous insurance coverage while studying at the University of Kansas. If you have further questions, please contact the Insurance Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
