If you already have commensurate health insurance, you may be able to opt-out of AUP’s health care plan. The deadline to receive an exemption from AUP health coverage is the last day of orientation week. No exemption will be approved after this date, and no exceptions will be made.

The insurance certificate must state that you will be covered for the duration of your stay in Paris. Dates of coverage, including a start date and an end date, must be clearly stated.

You are degree-seeking, you must provide:

You’re visiting, you must provide insurance that covers:

  • For 45,000 U.S. dollars
  • Hospitalization
  • General medical treatment
  • Medical repatriation
  • Return of mortal remains
  • Coverage must be valid for the whole semester
  • Health insurance exemption form

All documents must be provided to the health plan coordinator no later than orientation check-in.

Any exemption that is approved must be updated every year. That is to say, that if you plan to attend AUP for several years, for example, you must apply for an exemption at the start of each academic year.

While exemptions are possible in a limited number of cases, we strongly encourage you to enroll in the AUP health care plan as is guarantees adequate coverage and allows AUP staff to provide full support should any emergency arise.

Keep in mind that the AUP Health Office does not take responsibility for the insurance of exempt students. If a student is planning on applying for an exemption, they should become familiar with the details of their independent insurance contract, especially regarding reimbursement and hospitalization procedures before arriving in Paris.
