Medical insurance is required for all F-1 visa international students at Dallas Baptist University.
Enrollment in the mandatory Dallas Baptist University plan is automatic at the time of registration,
and the cost of the insurance will appear on your student account as semester student insurance.
The fall insurance premium appears on the fall semester student account; the premiums for
spring and summer coverage are combined on the spring semester student account. If summer
is your first semester, a summer charge will be applied to your student account.
Health coverage is provided through Academic Health Plans. In addition to health insurance, the
student policy covers medical evacuation and repatriation of remains in case of death. The
complete insurance brochure is available at Academic Health Plans.
Health insurance purchased from a private company will not be accepted in lieu of the mandatory
DBU student insurance policy. The insurance advisor will evaluate previously existing policies on
a case by case basis. Please see the links below for information about health insurance waivers.
Dependent Insurance: If you need insurance for a dependent living with you here in the U.S., contact the Cashier's Office for information.
Students are welcome to choose any doctor or hospital, but not all doctors and hospitals
participate in the plan. Local care facilities that participate in the plan include:
