The Fall 2016 UIS Student Insurance Waiver Has Now Closed

Student Insurance Fee Appeal Procedure

 

Since approved waivers are valid for one full academic year (August to following August), please remember that should you lose your private source of health insurance and decide to retract a previously filed waiver, you will need to contact the office of Student Insurance immediately to obtain the required paperwork. studentinsurance@uis.edu


 

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 form, and posts it only during appropriate times.

Please visit uis.myahpcare.com to see the brochure for detailed information about the student insurance plan or to look for in-network providers.  The website contains useful information regarding the plan, providers, and even information about the optional dental coverage available through Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Students who would like to add Optional Adult Dental coverage can review information here.

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, discounts and more!
