All domestic students taking a full course load, all international students and international post doctoral fellows and visiting scholars on a J-1 or F-1 visa are required to show proof of health insurance comparable to the health insurance plan offered for FSU students. Dependents with J-2 visas are also required to be insured, per federal regulations. The Board of Governors’ rules require dependents with F-2 visas to be insured.
Registration is blocked for those students required to show proof of health insurance.
Health insurance provides protection for the unexpected illnesses and injuries that can interrupt your education and takes care of the expenses for routine health care. Part of our mission at the health center is to insure that students at Florida State have the opportunity to optimize their entire university educational experience through good health. Students without health insurance often neglect their health or defer their health care because of the expense. No student should have to decide between continuing his or her education or paying a medical bill.
