Health Insurance

Health Insurance Requirements for All Students

The Board of Regents of The University of Texas System mandates health insurance for all health-related students. UT Tyler has contracted with Academic Health Plans (AHP), in partnership with the insurance plan carrier, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX), to verify your insurance coverage. As such, each student who cannot provide evidence of coverage under another approved plan will be enrolled in the student insurance plan with Academic HealthPlans and assessed a health insurance fee.

Before registering for classes each term, every student must complete the health insurance certification process. Through this process, students either provide information about their own coverage or confirm their participation in Academic HealthPlans.
