Why does UF require proof of health insurance?
The age range of college students accounts for the largest group of uninsured and under-insured individuals in the nation. Here at the University of Florida, preserving our students’ health and wellness is paramount. There are times when students’ health or well-being, access to health services, or payment for healthcare can hinder them from achieving their academic goals. This change was founded on removing as many obstacles as possible for our students to reach graduation.
Who is required to show proof of health insurance?
All newly admitted or re-admitted domestic students who are enrolled at least half-time in a degree-seeking program along with all international students are required to purchase the Student Health Insurance Plan unless proof of comparable coverage is provided. Proof of comparable coverage is provided annually.
