INTO OSU, INTO USF and INTO Drew insurance requirements
Your health insurance has to meet the US government's requirements, the state's requirements and the University's requirements. So, to make it easy for you, we'll automatically add the appropriate health insurance to your bill for you.
INTO Mason insurance requirements
All students with an F-1 and J-1 visa status must have health insurance. You'll automatically be enrolled in the University-selected insurance plan by Aetna Student Health. You will need to pay for university health insurance when you arrive at INTO Mason.
Check when your health insurance begins and ends coverage. In most cases, you have coverage from the start and finish dates of your course/program including any academic breaks or holidays. INTO OSU's health insurance coverage begins five days before your course start date and ends five days after your finish date.
In rare cases, if you already have health insurance, the university's insurance requirement may be waived. Visit the individual university website for more information.
Bringing dependents with you? They also must have health insurance and each university will have its own policy on this.
INTO OSU: Visit the Student Health Centre when you arrive to arrange this. Remember to bring money with you to pay.
INTO Mar and INTO Mason: Dependents must have health insurance before arriving in the US.
INTO Drew: To live in campus housing, your dependents must be enrolled in the Drew Dependent Plan or similar. You can enroll online at University Health Plans, Inc.
Please see the university website for more information.
