Insurance Waiver Is Now Open!

The Insurance Waiver for the Academic Year 2017/2018 is currently open and ready to go at this link.

Coverage runs from August 16th, 2017 until January 9th, 2018.

Please Note:  Please allow the Office of Student Insurance processing time to get your information to Academic Health Plans.  Your student account must reflect the UIS Student Insurance Assessment of $516 before you will be able to login to Academic Health Plans to complete a waiver.

If you can not successfully login on first attempt, please reattempt in 5 days.  You will have until the posted deadline of September 25, 2017 to get your waiver submitted and approved. PLEASE NOTE: SAVE the confirmation number generated by AHP. This is your receipt of submission, so if there are problems or questions later on, this is the only thing to prove you submitted your waiver.

If you have already been charged the $516 fee for student insurance, please allow up to 5 business days for the credit to appear on your account after you process your waiver online.


Waiving As An International Student

International students wishing to waive out of the student insurance based on a policy purchased in their home country can refer to this link to determine if their insurance meets the waiver criteria.

Please note: if the insurance you have or are interested in purchasing prior to your attendance at UIS does not meet the minimum criteria, you will need to enroll in the UIS student insurance plan.

Coverage Information

The UIS Student Insurance Plan is an affordable, high-quality insurance program, designed to meet the needs of our students.  Any student taking any on campus or blended classes is automatically enrolled in student insurance and assessed a fee each semester, with optional coverage for dependents.

Please be aware that if you already have insurance through another provider, you must complete a waiver once per academic year.  


Please Note: Students enrolled in only online courses are not eligible for student insurance.  The only exception is during the summer term when students who were assessed the student insurance plan during the previous spring semester are allowed to ‘continue’ their coverage even if enrolled only online for summer, or if not taking any courses for summer.  To continue their coverage these students must use a separate form, and make payment to the university cashier, as the insurance cannot be automatically assessed to their student account.  The office of Student Insurance maintains this coverage continuation form, and posts it only during appropriate times.

Optional Adult Dental Coverage

Students who are interested in optional dental coverage may enroll by filling out the form at this link.

If you have any questions about filling out the form, where to mail it, or anything else regarding the optional dental enrollment process, please contact Academic Health Plans directly at 855-856-3549.

Review Your Insurance Policy

All Students should review their insurance plan.  Please visit Academic Health Plans to review your policy.  The AHP website can be used to find information about providers, prescriptions, optional dental coverage, discounts and more!
