OPT and AT Insurance Enrollment

KU students on (or pending) Optional Practical Training (F-1 OPT) / Academic Training (J-1 AT) who are not enrolling in KU classes, are eligible to continue their UHC United Healthcare Student Resources (UHCSR) insurance. If you are remaining in the USA, we highly recommends you have health insurance, as paying for medical treatment in the USA is very expensive. To enroll in United Healthcare insurance, please click on the links below to complete the online enrollment form. Once you complete and submit the enrollment form your eligibility will be verified by International Support Services.

Within 3-5 business days, you will receive a payment link and will be able to pay via credit card.

For additional information about the insurance policy please read the United Healthcare brochure.

*If you are F-1, F-2 or J-1, enrolling in KU classes (even online classes), you receive the insurance automatically, and the charge for insurance goes on your Enroll and Pay account, you do not need to submit the online enrollment form to enroll in the KU UHCSR health insurance plan . Email issinsurance@ku.edu, if you end up enrolling in KU classes after you submit the online enrollment form, as you will be charged again for insurance.
