Texas State University has a health insurance requirement for international students that must be met each semester. All international students on non-immigrant visas are required by university policy to have health insurance coverage while at Texas State. International students have two options for meeting this requirement:
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. 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 Student Health Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 512-245-2161, option 5.
May 1st, 2016: First day students can purchase the student health plan or request a waiver.
June 6th, 2016, 5pm: Last day students can purchase the student plan or request a waiver.
