Health Coverage Is Required
Health coverage is very important. UK requires all international students (on an F-1, J-1, or J-2 visa) to have qualifying health coverage. International students are automatically enrolled in the UK Student Health Plan (SHP) when they register for classes. You do not need to fill out any forms to enroll in SHP. J-2 dependents with a DS-2019 issued by a non-UK entity, organization, or government agency may choose to purchase insurance from other health providers, unless enrolling in coursework or beginning employment with the University of Kentucky.
The cost of SHP will be added to your student bill. See cost below. You may choose to buy coverage for your spouse and/or children through the company’s website and learn more at uky.myahpcare.com. See frequently asked questions below.
