Am I Eligible to Enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan?
It is the policy of Johns Hopkins University that all full-time students maintain adequate health insurance coverage to provide protection against unexpected accidents and illnesses. Most full-time students are automatically enrolled in the university student-sponsored health benefits plan, and the plan premium will be charged to your university student account, unless proof of comparable health insurance is provided for students eligible to waive.
Those who are eligible to waive the insurance must do so annually. All International students with an active F1 or J1 Visa status, are ineligibleto waive and are required to purchase the university plan.
There are some instances where a student’s department covers the cost of health benefits. In these situations, students will see a credit on their SIS bill for medical, dental and/or vision coverage.
