Student Insurance

UIS students on campusWelcome. The UIS Student Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan provides worldwide coverage for our students. Dependents are also eligible for coverage at an additional cost.

Please visit to see the brochure for detailed information about the student insurance plan or to look for in-network providers.

Please Note: Students enrolled in only online courses are not eligible for student insurance.


Exemption/Waiver Forms

  • IMPORTANT NOTICE: Exemption forms beginning with the Fall 2014 semester will be done online through a website provided by the new Student Insurance provider, Academic HealthPlans.  All UIS students will need to file their waiver annually.  If you have had a waiver on file for the 2013-2014 academic year, you will need to complete updated waiver online for the 2014-2015 academic year.
  • Once the Office of Student Insurance informs the campus that the waiver for the academic year 2014-2015 is online and live, students should be able to login.  Keep in mind that UIS must first send your student data to Academic HealthPlans for upload into their system.  If you experience difficulty logging in please attempt again at a later time as your data may have not yet been sent, but prior to the posted deadline of September 26, 2014.
