Exchange Visitors who receive all of their funding from a source outside of UNF, must purchase medical insurance from one of the following options:
OPTION 1: UNIVERSITY STUDENT/SCHOLAR HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN
Exchange Visitors are eligible for enrollment in the University Student Health Insurance Plan, which satisfies all U.S. Department of State Insurance requirements for the Exchange Visitor program. Detailed information about this year's current insurance plan is available on the Medical Compliance website.
To purchase this plan or to have more detailed questions answered, please contact the Medical Compliance office.
The University Student Health Insurance Plan offers comprehensive benefits that include hospital room and board, inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures, labs and x-rays, chemotherapy and radiation, inpatient and outpatient mental health services, physician office visits, consultant visits, ambulance, emergency care and prescription drugs.
Preventive Care Services are available to cover routine physicals and examinations, routine screenings, routine GYN examinations, and most immunizations.
All covered individuals will need to pay a portion of medical expenses out of pocket.
OPTION 2: PRIVATE INSURANCE COMPANIES
Any health insurance plan purchased from a private insurance company will have to meet the requirements mandated by the U.S. Department of State (see Medical Insurance Requirements on page 9). The UNF IC can provide you with a short list of companies/plans that meet these requirements.
