Insurance:

All students studying at UConn are required to maintain adequate health coverage throughout the duration of their exchange. Information regarding the UConn Student Health Insurance Plan, including costs and benefits, can be found here. All exchange students attending UConn are highly encouraged to enroll in the UConn Health Insurance Plan. If students elect a health insurance plan other than the UConn Health Insurance Plan, they are personally responsible for payment of services provided to the student at the Student Health Services facility on the Storrs campus. In addition, students are responsible for filing a claim to seek potential reimbursement from the non-UConn health insurance plan. U.S. doctor’s offices and medical providers will usually bill students directly and not participate with non-UConn health insurance plans.

Students may be eligible to waive the UConn Student Health Insurance Plan if they have sufficient coverage and meet UConn's minimum requirements for coverage. Please note that the waiver of the UConn Student Health Insurance Plan is not guaranteed and is subject to UConn's approval. If your current insurance does not meet UConn's minimum requirements for coverage you will be required to purchase UConn's Student Health Insurance Plan.
