Student Health Insurance


Johns Hopkins University requires that all students have comprehensive health insurance. Students are automatically enrolled in the student health benefits plan at the beginning of each academic year. However, students may waive enrollment in the school plan if covered by a plan that is comparable to that offered by the University. International Students with an F1/J1 visa status are required to purchase the student health benefits plan and are not eligible to waive out of coverage.

Dental and vision insurance are also available at an additional charge.

Rates for the Summer can be found at Summer 2024 Health Insurance Rates.

Rates for the 2023-2024 plan year can be found at JHU-SON_PHF-23-24.pdf (myahpcare.com). Rates for 2024-2025 will be available in mid-May 2024.

All full-time, on-campus students are billed per semester, for the Health Services Clinic Fee in order to have access to our on-campus health center. The University Health Services Fee (UHS) is not insurance. This fee, $850 annually, is charged each semester: Fall – $284, Spring – $283 and Summer -$283, and allows students unlimited access to Primary Care Services as well as Mental Health Services at the UHS Clinic, and is billed to all full-time on-campus students regardless of whether they are enrolled in the Student Health Plan.
