International students who hold an F-1 student visa are required to show proof of medical insurance with medical evacuation/repatriation coverage while they are enrolled at the University of Houston Victoria. Beginning with the Fall 2003 semester, F-1 international students at UHV who do not have insurance coverage will have the opportunity to purchase a medical coverage plan from Macori, Inc. of Spring, Texas.
