Student Insurance

Summer student insurance waiver is now open

If you’re taking on-campus or blended classes for summer 2019, and you haven’t waived your insurance in prior semesters for the 2018-2019 school year, you can access the waiver here.

Please note that if you waive out of the student insurance for this semester, you will still need to complete the waiver if you’re taking classes in fall 2019.

Summer manual insurance enrollment is now open

If you are enrolled in at least 1 credit hour of on-campus classes this summer semester, you will automatically be enrolled in the insurance. The summer waiver will open in a few weeks and you will receive emails regarding your ability to waive out.

If you are not enrolled in summer classes and wish to continue your student insurance through the summer term (June 1st through August 15th), complete this form and bring it to the Cashier’s office in PAC along with payment. The Cashier’s office can only accept checks, money orders, or cash – they cannot process debit or credit cards.

For those students who are graduating in the spring and wish to continue their student insurance through summer, you may still enroll in this continuation plan even if you do not intend to return in the fall.

Blue Cross ID Cards

For the 2018/2019 school year, BCBS will not issue permanent ID cards unless specifically requested by the student. You can continue to use your old cards issued in prior semesters, but because there are no plan or deductible changes, new cards will not be sent out.

Coverage Information

The UIS Student Insurance Plan is an affordable, high-quality insurance program, designed to meet the needs of our students.  Any students taking any on campus or blended courses are automatically enrolled in student insurance and assessed a fee each semester, with optional coverage for dependents.

International students please note – with the Student Insurance plan, all of the immunizations needed by the school and recommended by the CDC are covered 100%.

Fully online students are not eligible for the student insurance and will not be charged the fee, nor do they need to do the waiver.

Please be aware that if you already have insurance through another provider, you must complete a waiver once per academic year.  

Optional Adult Dental Coverage

Students who are interested in optional dental coverage may enroll by filling out this form.

If you have any questions about filling out the form, where to mail it, or anything else regarding the optional dental enrollment process, please contact Academic Health Plans directly at 855-856-3549.

Review Your Insurance Policy

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, optional dental coverage, discounts and more!
