Spring 2019 Student Insurance Waiver is now OPEN
The student insurance waiver website is now open. The deadline to waive the insurance is February 28th, 2019. Please note that only students who are enrolled in at least 1 credit hour of on-campus or blended courses will be eligible and charged for the student insurance; fully online students aren’t eligible and won’t be charged.
Also note that if you completed a waiver in the fall of 2018, you will not need to complete another until fall 2019.
Coverage runs from January 10th, 2019 until May 31st, 2019.
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.
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!
