Coverage While Traveling

Eligibility and Enrollment

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

Dependent Coverage

As an eligible student, you have the option to insure your dependents for an additional cost, including your spouse and unmarried children under age 26. Coverage is only available to your dependents if and when you are insured under the plan. Dependents must be enrolled by the deadlines listed in the tables below.

Enrollment can be completed online or by paper form. 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, they cannot be charged to your bursar account.

Enroll Your Dependents

If the enrollment deadline has passed, you cannot enroll your dependents until the next coverage period, unless there has been a significant life change known as an IRS-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. Enrollments submitted more than 30 days after the qualifying event will not be accepted, and you will have to wait until the next coverage period to enroll. Contact the Student Insurance Specialist at 812-856-4650 or for more information.
