Graduate Students and Registered Postdoctoral Trainees

  • Graduate students who have a stipend and postdoctoral trainees are offered the UT Select BlueCross BlueShield PPO plan.
  • Graduate students who do not receive a stipend must obtain health insurance through Academic Health Plans or a private insurance company of their choice.

Medical and Health Professions Students

The State of Texas has contracted with Academic Health Plans to provide an affordable insurance option for Texas students. However, students may choose any private insurance company of their liking.

All students are required to obtain and maintain health insurance coverage while enrolled at UT Southwestern Medical Center. Students should be knowledgeable of the specific coverage of their individual health insurance plan. Insurance plans vary and not all services are covered.
