Health Insurance

Health Insurance Requirements

Lehigh University requires all full-time and certified full-time graduate students to have health insurance.

Enrollment is confirmed by completing the Enrollment Form by the published deadline. 

The premium for academic year 2018-2019 is $1,918. 

Inaction on the student’s part will result in automatic enrollment in the student health insurance plan and the premium posted to the student account

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 upon submission of 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.

Health Insurance Subsidy

The subsidy program is offered to students who meet all criteria listed below on the payment subsidy date:

  • Full time or certified full time graduate student
  • Receiving assistantship or fellowship payments through the university payroll system
  • Have paid their Lehigh injury and sickness insurance premium in full or are signed up for payroll deduction of premiums

For 2018-19, the annual premium for student only coverage will be $1,918.   The University will provide a subsidy of $954 for the 2018-2019 year, thus, the out-of-pocket cost for individual coverage will be $964. Subsidy payments are automatically paid to all eligible students each semester and do not require application forms.

Eligible students will receive a subsidy payment of $477, minus the appropriate taxes, for each semester during which they qualify. The subsidy will be paid at the end of each semester (with the December 14 and May 15 paychecks). NOTE: If your paychecks stop before these dates, you will not be able to receive the subsidy.

The University’s insurance broker is University Health Plans http://www.universityhealthplans.com.  Due to the drastic changes that have been occurring in the insurance industry and in an attempt to provide affordable insurance coverage to our graduate students, the University no longer offers coverage for dependents. In order to help those students that require dependent coverage explore the dependent coverage available, University Health Plans will maintain a website that will list insurance companies that may provide coverage for dependents.

Students enroll in the University Health Plans insurance program by submitting to the Bursar:
