Not an F-1, F-2 or J-1 Student?

If you are not an F-1, F-2, or J-1 student enrolled in classes, you are not automatically signed up for the KU international student insurance plan. If you would like to purchase the KU UnitedHealthcare (UHC) insurance, or are changing your status, please contact the International Student Services Insurance Team: issinsurance@ku.edu.

If you are a permanent resident, U.S. citizen, or currently in any non-immigrant status (ie: H-1, L-2, TN, etc.) and would like to purchase the KU UnitedHealthcare (UHC) insurance, you may purchase the insurance online via the UHCSR Website using a VISA, MasterCard or E-check. The insurance coverage will be effective the day after you purchase it, or the policy effective date whichever is later.

NOTE: Because all J-1 Visitors are required to have health insurance for themselves and their J-2 dependents for the duration of their stay, regardless of enrollment, J-2’s who enroll in KU classes are not automatically billed for the insurance. Contact issinsurance@ku.edu to sign up for the KU UHC insurance.

If you want to buy coverage for your spouse or children:

  • For information about insurance for dependents, email issinsurance@ku.edu.
  • The price above for dependents includes the student portion, however, you will still pay for your student portion of insurance through your student financial account, and you will pay for your dependents separately.
  • Dependents must be added to the insurance within 30 days of arriving, but it is safest to have insurance in place before they arrive.
