How do I get exempted from the mandatory student health insurance policy?

Health science students must complete the Proof of Coverage Form, which is available at http://hr.uiowa.edu/benefits/health-insurance-undergraduate, in the back of the insurance booklet, or from the Benefits office.

International students must provide us with a copy of their policy and an insurance ID card along with the proof of coverage form. The policy must meet requirements listed in the insurance booklet you receive from the benefits office. 

Beginning with applicants enrolling for summer 2008, all new first-year students enrolled with 5 or more semester hours who do not belong to one of the two groups above, will be asked to report their insurance status through their Admissions Profile on ISIS, the University's online service center for students.  Students without coverage automatically will be enrolled in the University's Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP).
