Student Insurance

UIS students on campusWelcome. 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, with optional coverage for dependents.

Please be aware that if you already have insurance through another provider, you must complete a waiver.  Please see the waiver section below for more details.

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

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 DEADLINE TO COMPLETE YOUR WAIVER IS JUNE 15th, 2015.  THE WAIVER HAS NOW CLOSED FOR SUMMER TERM.  THE WAIVER FOR FALL TERM WILL NOT BE OPEN IN UNTIL AUGUST.  PLEASE WATCH FOR ADDITIONAL NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS TO COME.

                                          

Exemption/Waiver Forms

  • IMPORTANT NOTICE: Exemption forms beginning with the Fall 2015 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 2014-2015 academic year, you will need to complete updated waiver online for the 2015-2016 academic year.
  • Once the Office of Student Insurance informs the campus that the waiver for the academic year 2015-2016 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 25TH, 2015.
