The UIS Student Insurance Plan is an affordable, high-quality insurance program, designed to meet the needs of our students, with optional coverage available for dependents.

All Students should visit Academic Health Plans to review the policy. The AHP website can be used to find information about benefits, providers, prescriptions, and more!

The online portal for Fall 2022 WAIVER requests is now closed.

If you receive an email from studentinsurance@uis.edu stating that your account was assessed the Student Insurance Fee, and did not opt out prior to the September 26th deadline, you are enrolled in Student Insurance, and the fee will not be removed.

Note, unless informed otherwise, students who submitted an approved waiver in Fall 2022 will have a waiver in place that carries over through Spring and Summer, ending on August 15, 2023.

Fully online students are not eligible for Student Insurance and have not been charged the fee.

Shorelight International students are not eligible for UIS Student Insurance, and should email info@univhealthplans.com for information about their insurance plan.

Filing A Claim

Follow this link to the student insurance claim form and print it out. For most students, the claim will be for immunization, so in box 3 you will mark “preventative” along with the date(s) you were seen. As a student, you can most likely mark no on parts 5, 6, 7 and 8. Sign and date part 9, and add up the total dollar amount of your costs on part 10. Once completed, you will need a stamp and envelope, which you will physically mail to BCBS along with a copy of your walk-out statement from Health Services to this address:

BlueCross BlueShield of Illinois
P.O. Box 805107
Chicago, Illinois 60680-4112

Claims can take up to 10 days to be received and up to 30 days to process. If your claim check comes to our office, we will email you to come pick it up in Health Services. To protect your privacy, a valid form of identification must be presented during pick up.
