Policy Statement

Beginning in 2002, The University of Texas System Registrar's Office requires that all students enrolled in health institutions have health insurance coverage. 
Please see the Health Insurance section of the Health Information for Students policy in the Health Professions Student Catalog.

The student health insurance program is offered to registered students through a private company selected by The University of Texas System office. This plan is designed to supplement student health services provided in the student clinics. In addition, it also assists with expenses not covered by the student services fee and those incurred outside that setting such as prescriptions, hospitalization, etc. Students have the option of enrolling their families in this plan at an additional cost. This plan is reviewed each year and revised to meet the current needs of the students.

In addition, the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System requires all international students holding nonimmigrant 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 via telephone 713-500-8400 or Web site, or e-mail 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
