U.S. federal regulations, and the University of Dallas, require that all F-1 visa holders have health insurance to help cover the expenses of unexpected medical issues while residing in the US. The university has contracted with Wellfleet (Cigna Network) through Academic Health Plans to provide a policy that complies with federal law.
