UH Student Plan:

The University has selected HMSA (Hawaii Medical Service Association, Blue Cross-Blue Shield of Hawaii) to provide medical health insurance for our students for the current academic plan year. For more information or to enroll, please go to: hmsa.com/student

Other Insurance Plans

*Although certain insurance plans may meet the international student's health insurance requirements, it does not necessarily mean that UHSM is a participating provider or will submit claims to your insurance company.

International students with non-participating health insurance plans are still welcomed to go to UHSM for services. However, you may have to pay for services if your insurance is not accepted there. To see if your insurance plan is accepted, contact UHSM at (808) 956-8965.

UH Employer/Employee Health Insurance Plan (through EUTF)

EUTF Medical Plans that meet "most of" the minimum requirements:
**none of these plans cover repatriation and medical evacuation; you have to buy this separately

  • HMSA 80/20 PPO Plan
  • HMSA 75/25 PPO 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 health insurance plans from reliable providers may be accepted as long as the coverage meets the University's minimum requirements. It is important to make sure the plan meets all of UH's requirements before you purchase it because not all health insurance plans do.

Additionally, the health insurance company you select must certify on the required F-1 Student Acknowledgement & Insurance Provider Certification Form that your plan meets the University's minimum coverage requirements.

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 health insurance clearance.
