Health Insurance

The Board of Regents of The University of Texas System approved mandatory health insurance for students enrolled in the U.T. System health components, including students previously enrolled.  The Board of Regents has authorized the assessment of a health insurance fee for each semester to each student who cannot provide evidence of continuing coverage under another approved plan. The waiver form may be obtained from Auxiliary Enterprises, or by clicking on this link: Health Insurance Waiver form. It must be submitted no later than the 12th class day of the Spring and Fall term, and the 4th class day of the Summer term. PLEASE NOTE: If you do not take action by the deadline, you MUST pay the insurance assessed to you.

Students with coverage outside of the plan can contact Auxiliary Enterprises at 713/500-8400 or email: student-insurance@uth.tmc.edu to provide the information needed to waive the insurance fee.   The Board of Regents of The University of Texas System requires all international students holding non-immigrant visas and living in the United States to have coverage for repatriation and medical evacuation while enrolled at component institutions of The University of Texas.  The required health insurance fee assessed by the University includes coverage for repatriation and medical evacuation.  International students with coverage outside of the plan can contact Auxiliary Enterprises at 713/500-8400 or email:student-insurance@uth.tmc.edu to provide the information needed to waive the insurance fee and, if needed, purchase coverage for repatriation and medical evacuation.
PLEASE NOTE: It is your responsibility to confirm that the insurance charge has been removed from your bill once you have provided proof of insurance.  You may view your bill online at myUTH. Insurance verification is required in the Fall term of each year.  Important Information about Bacterial Meningitis
