Indiana University has a new student insurance vendor for the 2019-20 academic year. Beginning this academic year, the student health insurance coverage will be provided through Anthem. Coverage has been enhanced to include vision and dental coverage for all students, in addition to the medical and prescription coverage. There is no extra cost for the vision and dental coverage, it is included in the plan and students will be automatically enrolled. More information about the plan and benefits will be provided to students closer to the start of the semester.

The plan is administered by Anthem Student Insurance Plans and Academic Health Plans. Participation in this plan is mandatory for Indiana University International Students, Intensive English Program Students (IEP & PIE), and Visiting Scholars. Find detailed information, including out-of-pocket costs, full plan benefits, claims procedures, and exclusions in the Plan Summary (PDF).

Plan Highlights

  • Plan includes medical, prescription, vision and dental coverage all for one premium
  • Coverage nationwide and overseas: your benefits follow you wherever you go, offering 24/7 emergency medical care and assistance nationwide and overseas
  • 24/7 access to doctors from your mobile phone, tablet, or computer with a webcam through LiveHealth Online
  • 24/7 Nurseline: speak to a registered nurse who can help you with your fever, give you allergy relief tips and advise you where to go for care.
  • Mobile app to keep you healthy and connected to your benefits on the go

Eligibility and Enrollment

Participation in this plan is mandatory for Indiana University International Students, Intensive English Program Students (IEP & PIE), and Visiting Scholars. International and Intensive English students are automatically enrolled in the plan each semester, and are billed for the premium through their bursar account. For more information on enrollment, please contact your campus international student office. Visiting Scholars should contact their department or campus international student office for enrollment and payment information.

How to Enroll Dependents

Eligible students may also insure their dependents, including their spouse and unmarried children under the age of 26, for an additional cost. Dependent eligibility is effective and expires concurrently with that of the insured student, meaning coverage is only available to dependents if and when the student is insured under the plan. Dependents must be enrolled for the coverage period by the enrollment deadline listed in the table below.

Enrollment can be completed online or by paper submission. Regardless of your enrollment method, Anthem must receive your application and premium payment no later than the enrollment deadline listed below. Dependent premiums can be paid at the time of enrollment or by monthly installments; however, dependent premiums cannot be charged to your bursar account.

Enroll Your Dependents

If the enrollment deadline has passed, your dependents may not enroll until the next coverage period, unless there has been a significant life change known as a qualifying life event (i.e., marriage, birth, loss of prior coverage). If enrollment is submitted within 30 days of the qualifying event, coverage will be backdated and begin on the date of the qualifying event. If enrollment is submitted more than 30 days after the qualifying event, it will not be accepted and the student and their dependents will have to wait until the next coverage period to enroll. Please contact the Student Insurance Specialist for more information.
