U.S. Federal Regulations state that all J-1 exchange visitors and their dependents must meet insurance coverage requirements for the duration of their stay. Willful failure on your part to maintain the required insurance will result in the termination of your exchange program. All exchange visitors should be aware that they, and any accompanying dependents, may also be subject to the requirements of the Affordable Care Act (22 CFR 62.14(b)). All J-1 exchange visitors and their dependents are required to have insurance that meets the requirements outlined below.
|Repatriation of remains||$25,000|
|Deductible per accident or illness||$500|
You can purchase insurance coverage from a company of your choosing before you travel to the United States or after you arrive, but the plan must cover your entire stay. Visiting scholars can choose from three options in obtaining adequate health insurance:
This chart illustrates these requirements as well as the different options available. For all of these plans, you must show proof of your coverage by providing us with a copy of your insurance enrollment form and payment.
Please note: If you are planning to extend your J-1 status, you must demonstrate proof of insurance coverage for the extended period before we will create a new DS-2019 for you.
J-1 scholars can use the Student Health Center if they pay the health fee ($102.21 per semester for 2016/17). Spouses can also use the Student Health Center for $125 per semester (if the J-1 has also paid the health fee). You can pay this fee at the Student Health Center.
