Health Insurance

J-1 students are required to maintain the following minimum level of health insurance for their entire stay in the United States:

  • Medical benefits of $50,000 per accident or illness
  • Repatriation of remains in amount of $7,500
  • Expenses associated with medical evacuation in amount of $10,000
  • Deductible does not exceed $500 per accident or illness

You will be required to provide written proof of insurance coverage to ISSS. The information should be in English.  Your J-1 program may be cancelled if you fail to meet this requirement.

Many exchange students receive health insurance through their home country.  Any exchange student who is not covered by a qualified plan from one’s own country will need to enroll in Augsburg’s international student health insurance plan through HTH Worldwide.
