What is the health insurance requirement?

All J-1 exchange visitors and accompanying J-2 dependents at the University of Michigan are required to have health insurance coverage that meets the University's standards. You will be required to enroll in our Aetna Student Health insurance program at the mandatory immigration check-in program. If your government or program sponsor is providing you with health insurance, you will later have the opportunity to apply for a waiver of the mandatory health insurance. In order for a waiver to be granted, your health insurance coverage must be proven to meet specific mandatory standards, so please bring a copy of the insurance policy with you to the U.S.
