*Students enrolled at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences are required by University of Arkansas Board policy (Policy 1260.1) to have health insurance coverage at all times. The responsibility for obtaining health insurance coverage rests with the student. Students are urged to investigate for themselves the policy best suited to meet their particular needs. Students are encouraged to confirm their coverage under their existing plan of insurance prior to registration or, if they do not have any existing insurance, obtain such coverage.  A Student Injury and Sickness plan offered by Academic Health Plans is available to all UAMS students.  The amount reflected on this line is an estimated cost of plan offered by Academic Health Plans.  A summary of the plan’s coverage, eligibility requirements, and instructions for enrollment of students and their eligible dependents as well as contact information for a UAMS representative that can assist you is detailed at this link http://studentlife.uams.edu/student-insurance-required/.
