Health Insurance Requirements - Fall 2017

The University of Texas Board Of Regents has passed Regents Rule 50402, which now requires only F1, F2, J1 and J2 students who are currently enrolled, to have medical insurance compliant with the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). The UT Student Health Insurance Plan (UT-SHIP) meets these requirements.


New Students: You will have the opportunity to enroll in the UT-SHIP at international student orientation. Once your register for classes, the charge will be automatically added to your student MyMav account and paid when you pay your tuition and fees.


The cost of the insurance for the Fall 2017 semester is $890 and will cover you from August 15, 2017 until December 31,2017. To help students manage the increase in cost of insurance, the university has made arrangements for students to pay their insurance charges through the tuition and fee installment payment plan which allows you to pay in three separate installments.


For information about the health insurance enrollment or waiver process, please directly contact Academic Health Plans at 855-247-2273 or visit their website at AHPCare.com.



*An international student granted a waiver that does not include the Evacuation and Repatriation Coverage will be automatically enrolled in this coverage and the premium cost placed on the student’s account.*
