All international students and scholars are required to have an insurance plan with coverage that meets the minimum requirements. Indiana University works hard to advocate for you each year when we negoitate the IU International Plan with Aetna Student Health—a full-service insurance company— that administers the plan. There is a fee, but IU has negotiated reasonable rates.
Keep in mind that other insurance providers offer plans at attractive prices, but these plans only include coverage for catastrophic illnesses. IU’s plan provides much better coverage.
