International (F1 and J1 visa status), Medical, and Podiatric StudentsImportant Notice
Temple University requires that all International (F1 and J1 visa status), Medical students, and Podiatric students have medical insurance while attending Temple University.
As a student, you may enroll in any of several plans offered by the University. You may also elect not to enroll in any plan offered by the University and provide certification of “outside” health insurance.
If you elect not to enroll in any of the school-sponsored plans, you must complete the Certification of “outside” Health Insurance Coverage form. The Certification form must be completed online via this website during open enrollment, which takes place during the months of August through September for the fall semester and during January and February for the spring semester.
If you submit a Certification of Outside Health Insurance Coverage waiver form during the Fall 2013 semester, you do not need to submit another one for the Spring.
If you lose your “outside” health insurance coverage for any reason, you must contact the Temple University Benefits office immediately at 215-926-2270 to enroll in one of the school-sponsored plans.
