Health Insurance

Health Insurance

Yeshiva University requires that all students enrolled for 6 credits or more have health insurance. If you are a US Citizen, you may be enrolled in a family or employer plan. If your plan has a network of providers in New York City, you can apply for a waiver. You will get an email sent to your student email account with instructions on how to access the waiver/enrollment form.

For domestic students who are not currently insured through family or employer plans and for international students Yeshiva University has partnered with Gallagher Student Health to provide health insurance that meets ACA and Visa Requirements. Note all plans must be Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliant.
