  • This plan also covers what we call preventive care. Preventive care includes your annual physical, annual visit to the gynecologist, routine tests or screening, and immunizations.
  • Routine gynecological examinations are covered (1 per academic year), as well as routine pap smears and a routine mammogram for women between the ages of 35 to 40. For women 40 years of age and older, a routine mammogram may be covered every year, or more frequently based on the recommendation of the woman's physician. For more information on these benefits, see the “Routine Physical Exam Expense” section of the U-M International Student/Scholar Health Insurance (IHI) Plan Brochure . 
  • Medical evacuation to your home country is covered, as well as repatriation. Medical evacuation occurs when you are too ill to complete your stay at the University of Michigan, and you must return to your home country. In this case, the medical costs of your return trip will be covered by the insurance company. Repatriation refers to the shipment of your body back to your home country in the event of your death. These charges will be covered to the reasonable and customary amount.
  • The costs of pregnancy and childbirth are covered.
