Insurance Requirements for Full-Time Students

All full-time students at the University of Rochester are eligible for insurance through University Health Service (UHS) and must participate.

All incoming students must submit the Health History Form and Immunization Report prior to enrollment.

Student Health Plan

Full-time students must participate in the Student Health Program each year.

The Student Health Plan includes:

  • The mandatory health fee
  • Health insurance

Mandatory Health Fee

This fee covers the cost of visits to the UHS and the University Counseling Center (UCC) for the year and is charged to your student billing statement. All full-time students pay this fee, regardless of whether they enroll for University-sponsored insurance. This fee cannot be waived.

Health Insurance

Health insurance is required of all full-time students and must meet University criteria. Students can enroll in the University-sponsored health insurance plan or may apply to waive University insurance if they have comparable coverage.

Most international-based insurance plans generally do not meet University criteria, so please check the plan details carefully before making any purchase. All full-time students must complete the Online Health Insurance Process every year.

See UHS’s health insurance information page or email the UHS insurance advisor.
