Mandatory Health Insurance Plan

All students (F/J) and scholars (J), and their (F2 and J2) dependents coming to Auburn University are automatically enrolled and billed for the mandatory international student and scholar health insurance plan. Insurance is a semester-based fee (fall and spring) and includes coverage over the summer months: no refunds given for early departure for any reason including F2 and J2 dependents. This plan has been designed to minimize the cost of health care during your stay at Auburn and ensure you are complying with all U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Department of State Regulations. This plan provides all students and their dependents with more than the minimally recommended coverage required for health care in the U.S. All F, J and dependent status holders must carry insurance that is EQUAL TO OR GREATER THAN the Auburn standard for health insurance. All benefits apply to covered F-1, F-2, J-1 and J-2’s. U.S. born dependents may also be enrolled in this plan.

The Health Insurance Plan is offered by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama. This plan is designed to be used in conjunction with the services of the Auburn University Medical Clinic. This means AUMC will be your preferred provider for all medical needs unless they are closed, you need to be referred out for a medical need, you have an emergency that requires an emergency medical center, or you need medical care related to maternity needs. You will not need a referral for maternity care.

The Auburn University Insurance Office can assist students and scholars with important services related to their health care plan, enrollment questions and needs, as well as the following:

  • Billing questions
  • Policy questions
  • Claim assistance
  • Adding dependents
  • Terminate coverage

The Insurance Office is located in 228 Foy Hall.
