Texas State University has a health insurance requirement for international students that must be met each semester. All international students with an F-1 or J-1 visa classification are required by university policy to have health insurance coverage while at Texas State. International students have two options for meeting this requirement:
- Enroll in and purchase the United Healthcare Student Health Insurance Plan endorsed by the university
- Questions on how to enroll and use? Contact the Student Health Center at 512.245.2161, press option 4.
- Request a waiver by submitting proof that student has health insurance coverage that is provided by a U.S. employer or paid for by the student’s home country or U.S. Government
- Questions about the health insurance requirement and waiver process? Contact the International Office at 512.245.7966 or visit their website.
