Student Insurance

Student Health Insurance Plan

All students are encouraged to have health insurance coverage. The Student Health Insurance Plan is an optional University of Texas System sponsored health insurance plan available to currently enrolled University of Texas at Austin students. Information and enrollment is available online. The Student Health Insurance Plan pays 100% for all covered services at University Health Services and includes in- and- out-of-network benefits for off-campus providers and facilities (deductibles, co-pays and/or coinsurance may apply for off-campus services).

International Student Health Insurance

The Student Health Insurance Plan described above is mandatory for international students; the cost is included in the student’s tuition bill each semester. International students may be eligible to waive the cost and coverage of the Student Health Insurance Plan if they are able to present to International Student and Scholar Services an alternative insurance policy that provides benefits comparable to the Student Health Insurance Plan. Additional information about international students and student health insurance is given in the International Student and Scholar Services section of this catalog.

Student Liability Insurance

Students must show evidence of student liability insurance when enrolled in field experience courses that use off-campus facilities if such facilities require the insurance.
