Student Insurance


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.

Summer Continuation Insurance Reminder

Students will be enrolled in summer student insurance if they are taking On-Campus Classes and do not have a waiver on file for the 2017/2018 academic year.

If you will be graduating May, 2018, or are taking fully online summer classes, or are taking the summer off, and wish to continue the UIS Student Insurance, you can use this form to continue your insurance from June 1st, 2018 until August 15th, 2018.

The summer rate is $286, which must be paid for with cash, check, or a money order (credit cards are not accepted). You will complete the form and bring it to the Cashier’s Office in PAC 184.

Contact Tony Lozzi at 217-206-7237 if you have any questions.



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!
