CampusCare Student Health Insurance Program

UIC requires that all registered students be covered by health insurance and provides a plan, known as CampusCare, for which a fee is automatically assessed–along with tuition and other fees. When you register for summer session classes you will be enrolled automatically in CampusCare for the summer. There is no enrollment form to complete. Eligible students include all registered degree and non-degree Undergraduate, Graduate, and Health Professional students.

CampusCare benefits include:

  • Physician, hospital and emergency room services
  • Discounted vision and dental program
  • Behavioral health services
  • Prescription drug program

Dates of Coverage

CampusCare coverage begins on Monday, May 19, 2014 for students who register for any summer courses before Monday, June 2, 2014. If you register for courses after June 2, 2014, your coverage will begin on the date you register. To avoid problems with access to coverage, the CampusCare office advises you to register for courses before May 20. Summer coverage ends on August 15, 2014.

Student Health Insurance Fee

The CampusCare Student Health Insurance fee is one of several fees listed on your student account. The fee for the 2014 Summer Session will be $304. Fees are subject to change prior to the start of the term. Please note that the Student Health Insurance fee is different from the Student Health Services fee, which is a mandatory fee (cannot be waived). For more information about the services covered by the Student Health Services Fee, go to the Department of Family Medicine Web site.
