Health insurance coverage is mandatory for all individuals in F-1, J-1 or J-2 status, whose I-20 or DS-2019 is sponsored by the University of Kansas. United Healthcare’s Student Resources insurance premium is automatically included on all F-1 and J-1 students’ Enroll & Pay accounts, at the time the student enrolls in classes. If a student has a 50% GTA, GRA or GA appointment, he/she is eligible for the university’s 75% contribution to his/her insurance premium. Additional questions regarding GTA, GRA or GA staff benefits should be directed to the Human Resources Office in Carruth O’Leary Hall: 785-864-4946.
Alternatively, if a student does not wish to participate in the UHC insurance plan, and he/she can show proof of adequate insurance coverage from another provider, the student may complete the waiver process at International Student Services, Room 2, Strong Hall. More information can be found on the ISS website.
