STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE
The Georgia Board of Regents (BOR) offers student health insurance for eligible students and their dependent(s). Two groups of students may purchase student health insurance: Mandatory and Voluntary. Mandatory students are required by the BOR to have student health insurance and the charge is applied automatically to the student's account along with tuition. Mandatory Graduates: Teaching Assistant, F1 or J1 visa holder, Research Assistant, Fellowship or Full tuition waiver. Mandatory Undergraduates: F1 or J1 visa holders. Mandatory students who already have health insurance may apply to waive the Board of Regents (BOR) student health insurance coverage.
There is a 30 day open enrollment period at the start of each semester to enroll for student insurance coverage, to enroll for the voluntary plan, or for mandatory students to add spouse/dependents coverage. For students and spouses with Board of Regents (BOR) student health insurance, Stamps Health Services (SHS) is the primary care provider. SHS renders care to students, spouses, and domestic partners. Dependent children are not eligible to be treated at SHS. Please visit www.health.gatech.edu for more information.
