Texas A&M University and TAMU System Employees
If you are eligible for benefits through Texas A&M University or the Texas A&M University System, then you will receive employee health insurance through Blue Cross Blue Shield Texas. You can also add extra benefits for dental, vision, and hearing. Click here to learn more.
If you will not be employed by TAMU/System or you are ineligible to receive benefits, then you’ll need to get health insurance through other providers for the duration of your J-1 program. The insurance policy can be from your home country or the U.S. (or a mixture of both), as long as it meets the minimum requirements.
