Policy on Health Insurance

Visiting Scholars (faculty members, researchers, all non-graduate students): Visiting Scholars are responsible for purchasing their own health insurance. If you are financially supported by the Institute, fellowship support for your individual health insurance plan is provided. We recommend that you review the Harvard International Office pages on health insurance options: http://www.hio.harvard.edu/health-care-scholars

Visiting Fellows (graduate students): If you are financially supported by the Institute, we will provide you with medical insurance through University Health Services (UHS).

The Institute does not provide medical insurance for family members.
