You will need to print your own copy of the insurance ID card; it will not be mailed to you. Please allow 7-10 business days after purchasing the insurance for your insurance ID card to be ready to print. 

If you need to see a doctor before this time, please contact the ISC. We will reach out to JCB Insurance Solutions to obtain the ID card information for you. 

The policy that you purchase will be with the Anthem insurance provider. All the information you need regarding the policy can be found on the JCB Insurance Solutions website. You will create an online account when you purchase the policy. Through this account, you can know the detailed policy coverage, print your insurance ID card and find a doctor or clinic that accepts the Anthem insurance that you purchased from JCB Insurance Solutions. 

Insurance for dependents

J-1 students are required to purchase insurance for dependents living in the United States. You must purchase insurance for your dependent(s) within 30 days of their arrival in the U.S. Beginning with Fall 2020, insurance for dependents is no longer available for the insurance that you will buy through JCB Insurance Solutions. For information on other companies that offer insurance for your dependent(s), please contact JCB Insurance Solutions.
