Yale University International Student Insurance

General Information

Yale University, located in New Haven, Connecticut, was founded in 1701, making it the third-oldest university in the U.S. It’s an Ivy League school and enjoys a reputation as one of the most prestigious institutions of higher education in the world. It was chartered by the colonial legislature as the Collegiate School, moved to its current location in 1716, and was renamed Yale College in 1718 after British philanthropist (and substantial donor to the school) Elihu Yale. The medical school took root in 1810, and the law department first took hold in 1824. A graduate school for arts and sciences came together in 1847, and in 1864, the school was officially renamed Yale University. The first female students were admitted to the graduate school in 1892, but the school didn’t become fully coeducational until 1969.

Today, Yale enrolls more than 13,000 students and counting each year. The school color is Yale Blue, and its athletic nickname is the bulldogs.

Academic and Research Opportunities

Yale offers bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral, and professional degrees across its 14 academic schools, including Yale College (the undergraduate college), the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and 12 professional schools. Yale awarded the first Ph.D. in the U.S. in 1861. The Yale University Library boasts more than 15 million volumes and is one of the largest in the country. The campus features numerous museums and art galleries, including the Yale University Art Gallery, the oldest college museum in the U.S.; the Yale Center for British Art; the Peabody Museum of Natural History; and the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library.

The university is also home to a number of prestigious research centers & institutes divided into the general categories of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences; Medical & Health Sciences; and Sciences & Engineering. More than 95% of undergraduate science majors participate in some form of faculty-led research. 

Notable Alumni

Notable Yale alumni include five U.S. Presidents (William Howard Taft, Gerald Ford, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush); five U.S. Supreme Court Justices (Taft, Sonia Sotomayor, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, and Brett Kavanaugh); former U.S. First Lady and Senator Hilary Clinton; authors Sinclair Lewis, John Hersey, and Tom Wolfe; actors Jodie Foster, Edward Norton, Meryl Streep, and Sigourney Weaver; and the founders of companies like Pinterest, Morgan Stanley, Boeing, FedEx, and the Blackstone Group.

Yale University International Student Insurance Requirements

Exchange Visitors

All J-1 exchange visitors and their J-2 dependents are required to have medical insurance for the entire period of their stay in the U.S. They may select the medical insurance plan that is best for them and their family, but it must meet the following minimum coverage requirements: $100,000 per accident or illness, a deductible of no more than $500 per illness, a co-pay not to exceed 25%, medical evacuation of $50,000, and repatriation coverage of up to $25,000.

Yale employees are automatically enrolled in the International SOS plan, a travel assistance program that covers medical evacuation and repatriation. J-2 dependents are also covered by this plan. J exchange visitors, as well as J-2 spouses and dependents, may be subject to the requirements of the Affordable Care Act. 

International Students

All students enrolled at least half-time in a degree-seeking program must provide proof of insurance in order to waive the Yale Health Hospitalization/Specialty Care Coverage plan. Yale Health is a closed-model HMO and does not accept outside insurance.

Please contact our office if you would like more information. This information may be subject to change based on a health insurance waiver or compliance form.
