Insurance Information

  • InterExchange arranges the same insurance coverage for J-1 and J-2 Visa holders. Insurance details can be found on our insurance resources page.
  • J-2 Visa holders must be insured for their entire stay and pre-purchase insurance for the number of months they will be in the U.S.
  • If arriving before the start date indicated on your DS-2019 Form, you must purchase additional insurance to ensure you are covered during this time frame. InterExchange will order your insurance upon arrival in the U.S., and you will receive an insurance card via email within approximately two-three days of your arrival.
  • Please note that this is not health insurance; it is accident and sickness insurance. Health insurance is comprehensive and includes preventative care and regular check-ups, as well as care for pre-existing and ongoing conditions. Accident and sickness insurance, though, is simply for accidents and unexpected sickness.
  • If you require regular, ongoing care, you must ensure that you arrange for a secondary health insurance plan in addition to the accident and sickness insurance provided through InterExchange.
  • Similarly, if you have an ongoing illness for which you require more extensive care, you may want to consider temporarily interrupting your program to seek treatment at home. In addition, if your condition is severe, you may want to consider returning home early in order to receive lower cost treatment in your home country.
