Covered students must have been insured for at least six (6) continuous months. Your premium must be received by Academic Health Plans within 30 days after your UTSA Student Health Insurance Plan terminates. Eligible students may purchase an extension of coverage for up to a maximum of 3 months. Per AHP, continuation of coverage is only available once and cannot be renewed (example: purchase 1 month extension, not able to extend for additional 2 months). Contact Academic Health Plans for more information, if needed.
