Health Insurance

Lehigh University requires all full-time and certified full-time graduate students to have health insurance. If you meet eligibility requirements and have comparable coverage from a domestic insurance company with claims paid in the United States, you may choose to not purchase the Student Health Insurance Plan.

However, if you are eligible and do not have health insurance, you are required to enroll in the Lehigh Student Health Insurance Plan by completing the Enrollment Form in the Bursar's Office by the published deadline. Please be aware that inaction will result in automatic enrollment in the student health insurance plan and a charge of $1,918 for the premium will be posted to your Bursar's bill.

Please note that all international graduate students in F-1 or J-1 visa status are required to purchase the insurance provided by Lehigh University. Domestic students, however, may waive the requirement to purchase this insurance if they submit proof of coverage from another ACA-qualified plan, such as one offered by an employer, spouse, or parent. Part-time students are not eligible to purchase insurance through Lehigh University's student plan.

For complete details on the Student Health Insurance plan, including complete eligibility requirements, effective dates and costs, enrollment periods, and the schedule of benefits, please see the Lehigh University Student Health Insurance Plan information available from University Health Plans.
