Health Insurance for J-1 Scholars and Exchange Students

Every J-1 and J-2 nonimmigrant is required by law to maintain health insurance coverage of at least $50,000 per accident or illness, with a deductible of not more than $500; repatriation of remains, in the event of death, in the amount of $7,500; and expenses associated with medical evacuation to your home country or to your country of permanent residence in the amount of $10,000.

Please note however that all regular students are subject to the University's hard waiver insurance requirements.
