F-1 and J-1 International Student Health Insurance

If you are eligible to waive the student Health Insurance Plan, you should request a waiver through Insurance Portal.

Please do not email your Health Insurance Benefit to the International Office.

Texas State University has a health insurance requirement for international students that must be met each semester. All international students on F-1 and J-1 visas are required by university policy to have health insurance coverage while enrolled in classes at Texas State. International students have two options for meeting this requirement:

  • Purchase the United Healthcare Student Health Insurance plan endorsed by the university, or
  • Request a waiver by submitting proof that student has health insurance coverage that is:
  1. Student is covered by a U.S. employer health insurance plan or by a parent/spouse's U.S. employer health insurance plan that is compliant with the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
  2. Student's sponsored plan (US Government or Foreign Government) is recognized by the U.S., and the sponsor guarantees payment of all healthcare expenses including medical evacuation and repatriation, and are in compliant with the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

PLEASE NOTE that students must either purchase the plan or submit a waiver for each semester that they are enrolled at Texas State. Students will receive an e-mail with instructions each semester. The e-mail will go to the student’s Texas State e-mail address. The e-mail will have a web link for students to use to either purchase the plan or submit an online waiver request. The first e-mail will be sent out at the start of the open enrollment period (see table below).

If a student has not received their e-mail by the first day of open enrollment, they should e-mail the International Office at intlhealth@txstate.edu
