Mandatory insurance requirement for international students who enter the United States

Posted by on Tuesday, September 1, 2020 in .

International students studying abroad in Fall 2020 who initially waived the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) must enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan if they enter the United States at any point during the 2020-2021 academic year or Summer 2021. Specifically, you will be required to email ship@vanderbilt.edu two weeks in advance of your arrival date to the United States and provide your date of entry to the country so that we may enroll you in coverage. Your Student Health Insurance Plan coverage will be effective retroactive to the first day of the month that you arrive in the United States, and your premium will be prorated to reflect your active coverage period. You will be required to pay for your premium through your Student Account on YES.
