Health Insurance Waiver
Summer 2013: health insurance should cover the dates May 13, 2013, through August 23, 2013
NOTE: If your health insurance coverage dates do not include the entire summer semester , you will be responsible for paying the summer health insurance charge in your tuition bill.
The waiver application period begins May 20, 2013, and will end June 7, 2013.
The University of Texas (UT) System requires all international students on non-immigrant visas living in the United States have medical, evacuation and repatriation of remains insurance. The UT System-sponsored student health insurance plan is Academic Health Plans. A fee is automatically assessed to cover the cost of this health insurance plan each semester of enrollment.
Students with alternative insurance that meets or exceeds UT System requirements may request a waiver of the insurance fee during the designated periods.
The university has the discretion to determine what constitutes sufficient documentation demonstrating approved health insurance coverage.
Acceptable proof of coverage MUST be written in English and money listed in U.S. dollars.

Teaching Assistants/Research Assistants
If you have been appointed for a UTSA Teaching or Research Assistant position, you may be eligible for UTSA employee insurance. Your hiring department will coordinate with Human Resources regarding your employee benefits eligibility and possible employee medical insurance.
Please note that UTSA employee insurance does not include Medical Evacuation and Repatriation of Remains coverage; therefore you will need to purchase this coverage separately. For more information about the Medical Evacuation & Repatriation coverage, please refer to: http://international.utsa.edu/insurance/medical-evacuation-repatriation-coverage.
