International Student Medical Insurance

Princeton University International Student Insurance

Princeton University, located in Princeton, New Jersey, was established in 1746. It’s the fourth-oldest institution of higher education in the United States and one of eight schools in the Ivy League. The university was the site of the Battle of Princeton (1777) during the American Revolution; British soldiers briefly occupied a hall on campus, but American forces led by George Washington forced them out under cannon fire. Washington returned to that same hall in 1783 to receive formal thanks and commendation from the Continental Congress for his contributions to the war effort.

Princeton’s colors are orange and black, and its athletic mascot is the tigers.

On Campus

Noteworthy features on campus include Nassau Hall, the building involved in the Battle of Princeton and the seat of the Congress of the Confederation from June to November of 1783; McCarter Theatre, winner of the 1994 Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre and continually recognized as one of the leading regional theaters in the country; and the Princeton University Art Museum, which houses more than 90,000 pieces and paintings by artists like Monet, Cezanne, and Van Gogh.

Princeton is somewhat notable in that it did not admit women until 1969.

Notable Alumni

Famous Princeton alumni include U.S. Presidents James Madison and Woodrow Wilson; Vice President and revolutionary figure Aaron Burr; author F. Scott Fitzgerald; academic figures Richard Feynman, John Nash, and Alan Turing; Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito, Elena Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor; actors Jimmy Stewart and David Duchovny; and former First Lady Michelle Obama.

Princeton University International Student Insurance Requirements

Exchange Visitors

Princeton University states that all J-1 scholars and their dependents are required to have health insurance for the full duration they are participating in the J visa program or their stay in the United States. For this reason, the university provides a J-1 visa plan for all J-1 employees or J visa holders who have not elected to waive out of the plan. Should the participant choose to waive the school’s J-1 visa plan, the alternative plan must meet the federal health insurance regulations issued by the Department of State. All plans located either in the Exchange Visitors (J-1/J-2) section of the site or the plans listed below will meet the federal health insurance regulations. However, the available plans do not meet the minimum essential health insurance limits referred to as PPACA compliance plans.

It is recommended to contact the Davis International Center or Human Resources to verify the health insurance requirements prior to purchase, as detailed information may only be provided to the attendee.

International Students

Princeton University states that as they provide a number of services to help ensure the student’s physical and mental wellbeing, they require all students to attain health insurance while enrolled at the university. Therefore, all Princeton students (undergraduate and graduate) are automatically enrolled in the Student Health Plan (SHP). They are able to waive out of the SHP for a plan that provides comparable coverage, such as but not limited to:

  • Routine wellness and preventive medical care
  • Prenatal and postnatal maternity care, newborn care, and pediatric care/services
  • Chronic disease management
  • Rehabilitative and habilitative services and devices

Accompanying Dependents

Princeton University does not provide information pertaining to health insurance requirements for international student accompanying dependents carrying an F-2 or J-2 visa. Therefore, those dependents can find the available plans under each given Student (F-1/F-2) or Exchange Visitor (J-1/J-2) section. All plans in the Exchange Visitor (J-1/J-2) section meet all the federal limits of coverage as required by the US Department of State.

It is recommended to contact the Davis International Center or University Health Services department to verify the health insurance requirements prior to purchase, as detailed information may only be provided to the attendee
