Student Health Plan, Requirements

For International Students, Scholars, and Accompanying Family Members

Insurance Requirements

International students and scholars

International students and scholars, including J-2 or F-2 family members, are required to have health insurance while at Willamette. Good health insurance helps protect your ability to continue your study by managing healthcare costs.

Willamette University (WU) provides a mandatory health insurance plan through PacificSource.

You and your dependents are automatically enrolled.

Note, this a medical plan only. Dental is NOT included for adults (over age 18).

It is reasonably priced for the high level of coverage it provides.

  • Meets U.S. Affordable Care Act requirements.
  • Meets "J" visa health insurance requirements, including medical evacuation and repatriation of remains.

Enrollment & billing to your WU student account are done via the Office of International Education.

  • Enrollment is on an annual period. Cost is billed to you in two pieces: once at the beginning of each semester. See the Cost table below for details.
  • One semester exchange students: You are billed only for the term you attend Willamette.
  • Note: Insurance does not cover 100% of healthcare costs. You pay the cost of the insurance (table below) plus you pay the healthcare provider for costs/balances that insurance does not cover. These costs are called: co-pay, deductible, coinsurance, non-covered or excluded costs, out-of-network costs, etc. Purchasing insurance is a cost in addition to any of these balances.
