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 course is automatically enrolled in Student Insurance and assessed a fee each semester, with optional coverage for dependents.

Students must maintain active enrollment and eligibility at UIS in order to maintain coverage. A covered student who becomes inactive at UIS will lose their coverage at the beginning of the month following their withdrawal.

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!

Fully online students are not eligible for the Student Insurance and will not be charged the fee, nor do they need to submit a waiver request.

Blue Cross ID Cards

For the 2022/2023 school year, BCBS will issue permanent ID cards only to students new to the plan, unless specifically requested by a student. You can continue to use your card issued in a prior semester, but because there are no plan or deductible changes, new cards will not be sent out.

If you need a copy of your insurance card

Call the customer service number of BCBS at 1-855-267-0214


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.


Optional Dental and Vision Enrollment

Students can also enroll in dental and/or vision.

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

If you receive an email from studentinsurance@uis.edu stating that your account was assessed the Student Insurance Fee, and wish to opt out, please take the appropriate course of action!  Review of your student billing is another valid way to determine if your account was assessed. If you already have insurance through another provider, you will have 7 weeks in which to submit request to opt out of UIS Student Insurance prior to the deadline of September 26, 2022.

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.
