UH Employer/Employee Health Insurance Plan (through EUTF)
Certain EUTF plans (Hawaii Employer-Union Health Benefit Trust Fund) meet the University's minimum requirements.
EUTF Medical Plans that meet the medical requirements:
HMSA 90/10 PPO Plan
HMSA 80/20 PPO Plan
HMSA HMO Plan
Kaiser Basic Plan
Kaiser Comprehensive Plan
EUTF Medical Plans that DO NOT meet the medical requirements:
HMSA High Deductible Health Plan
HMSA Supplemental Plan
Royal State Supplemental Plan
IMPORTANT: In addition to the EUTF medical plan, you must purchase a separate repatriation and medical evacuation insurance. Some companies that sell this type of insurance are: International SOS and Basic Emergency Travel Assistance (BETA); HOWEVER, you can purchase this coverage from any company of your choice as long as it meets the minimum requirements.

Other Insurance Plans
Other insurance plans from reliable insurance providers may be accepted as long as the medical health insurance coverage meets the University’s minimum requirements. If you plan to purchase another medical health insurance policy, make sure this policy will meet the UH standards before you purchase it, as many policies do not meet these requirements.
Since UH endorses HMSA, University officials do not “recommend” other plans. The health insurance marketplace is large and constantly changing. It is your responsibility to carefully review benefits and exclusions of specific plans to determine if that plan will meet the minimum requirements as well as suit your needs.
Additionally, the health insurance company you select must certify on the F-1 Student Acknowledgement & Insurance Provider Certification Form that your plan meets the University’s minimum coverage standards.
IMPORTANT: If your plan does not meet the minimum levels of coverage required or your insurance company will not complete and sign the F-1 Student Acknowledgement & Insurance Provider Certification Form, then your plan will not be accepted for medical clearance.
