You are required to purchase health insurance for your dependents (spouse and any unmarried children) for the duration of their stay in the United States.
Insurance for Dependents
You must mail your application for insurance for your dependents within 15 days of their arrival in the U.S. Keep a copy of the application for your records as proof.
Eligibility for IU health insurance
Your dependents are eligible for health insurance through IU if you are enrolled in the IU international student health plan.
If you are not enrolled in IU’s international student health plan, you must find other health insurance for your dependents. Unlike IU students, your dependents will not automatically be enrolled in the plan.
Applying for health insurance for your dependents
You must fill out an application form and pay separately for dependent insurance. It cannot be billed through your bursar bill. University Human Resources provides detailed information on the available plan and the process.Learn more about insurance for dependents
