Health Insurance Requirements

In accordance to U.S. Federal regulations, and in compliance with University policy, all international students holding an F-1 or J-1 student visa are required to enroll in Xavier University's Student Health Insurance Plan. Because the United States does not operate on a socialized medical scale, this plan provides essential health coverage for students during their time at Xavier.

Please note the following:

  • International students will be automatically enrolled and billed for the Xavier University Student Health Insurance Plan through their Xavier account.
  • No international health insurance policies will be accepted in lieu of the Xavier University Student Health Insurance Plan.
  • Only students holding an F-1 student visa who are employed in the United States and receive health insurance through their company, or students who are a dependent of a parent who works in the United States and receive health insurance through the company, may request to waive out of the Xavier University Student Health Insurance Plan.

If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Lea Minniti, Director of International Student & Scholar Services.
