Information by Student Situation


Student insurance options and obligations are dependent on multiple factors. Such factors include but are not limited to non-immigrant status, the type of student a non-immigrant is, and whether a student is a graduate student employee.  Provided below is information for international students who find themselves in specifc situations. Please interact with the widgets below to expand the information present. 

If you are a First Time Student read this section along with the section for your Visa type and Graduate Student Employee (GSE) status. 

If you are a student arriving at Texas A&M for the first time in August you will be charged an additional fee for the Systems Student Health Insurance Plan (SSHIP). This fee will ensure that you have health insurance coverage from your arrival until the Fall coverage period on September 1st. You do not have to do anything to enroll, it will be charged to your fees and tuition when you register for classes.  You will see two fees for SSHIP on your Fall semester tuition and fees bill. One is for the August coverage period and the other is for the Fall coverage period. If you believe you have been charged incorrectly please contact ISS at ISS@tamu.edu  Please include your full name and your UIN in your message along with any details relevant to your case.  

Waiver Process 

If you have equivalent alternative coverage such as that provided by an employer or a spouse's employer you must apply for a waiver to have the charge removed. In order to be approved for a waiver, students will need to show proof of current coverage and proof that the coverage is equivalent to SSHIP. Typically, this includes the front and back of your insurance card and a copy of your insurance policy including coverage dates, the benefits schedule, and exclusions and limitations.  A list of requirements for the Equivalent Alternative Coverage can be found at https://iss.tamu.edu/Health-Insurance/Health-Insurance-Basics-%E2%80%93-A-M-Student-Health-Insur#0-WaiverCriteria . You must fit ONE of the Eligibility Criteria and ALL of the Health Insurance Requirements and Waiver ACA Essential Health Benefits to have your waiver approved.

Students who are still enrolled while on CPT are still required to maintain health insurance and obtain a SSHIP waiver as normal.  

F-1 or J-1 students offered health insurance coverage through a Curricular Practical Training (CPT) employer may wish to inform their pending employer that they are currently covered through SSHIP and provide your current policy coverage ending date.  

If desired the student can ask the employer if they can enroll in the employer's health insurance plan SSHIP ends. Students should keep in mind that they will have to apply for a SSHIP waiver every coverage period and that the employer's health insurance coverage must meet the waiver criteria.  

Those who have ended their degree program and who are no longer enrolled but who are participating in OPT will not be charged for SSHIP. Those who are completing OPT may still be required to have health insurance coverage for a number of reasons for example they may be required to have insurance under the ACA mandate.  Most employers will offer health insurance coverage that OPT participants may enroll in.  

If there is a gap between the end of a OPT participant's SSHIP or Grad Plan coverage and the beginning of their OPT employer health insurance coverage they may be covered under SSHIP or Grad Plan for 3 months if they purchase a continuation of coverage at https://tamu.myahpcare.com/enrollment

Continuations of Coverage through SSHIP can be completed through AHP based on your campus as listed below:

Students who have graduated or are otherwise ineligible for coverage and who have been continuously insured under the policy offered by the policyholder for three (3) months, are eligible to continue their coverage. 

Continuations for Grad Plan use the GSE Continuation Enrollment form. Continuations for SSHIP use the Non-GSE Continuation Enrollment Form. Forms must be submitted with the applicable premium to AHP within 30 days after the expiration date of the student coverage. Contact AHP at (877) 624-7911 for assistance with completing the form. 

Those who are attending under visa statuses other than F or J are not required by TAMU or Department of State regulation to purchase health insurance coverage. Please be aware that health care costs in the U.S. can be extremely expensive. You are encouraged to voluntarily enroll in SSHIP
