Health Insurance Waiver
UIC requires that all students be covered by health insurance and provides a plan for which the fee is automatically assessed along with other tuition and fees. Eligible students include all registered degree and nondegree Undergraduate, Graduate, and Health Professional students. There is no enrollment form to complete. Students with comparable health insurance coverage, for example through a legal guardian or an employer, can waive out of CampusCare Health Insurance by submitting an online waiver by 11:59 p.m. CST on June 3, 2013. Students who have applied or registered after June 3 should contact the Summer Session Office for assistance. As a UIUC/UIS student, the steps you need to take depend on your insurance coverage at your home campus.
I have already waived out of my home campus CampusCare program
If you have already submitted a CampusCare waiver at your home campus, you will automatically be waived out of coverage at UIC for the Summer Session. Should you wish to enroll in CampusCare for the summer, you will need to submit a reinstatement form by the June 3 deadline. Students who have applied or registered after June 3 should contact the Summer Session Office for assistance.
I use CampusCare coverage at my home campus.
If you have CampusCare coverage at your home campus, your coverage will be continued at UIC when you enroll. You will be assessed the CampusCare fee at UIC unless you submit the online waiver. If you extended coverage at your home campus for the summer and do not need CampusCare coverage through UIC, you can waive coverage at UIC by submitting the online waiver form by Monday, June 3. Students who have applied or registered after June 3 should contact the Summer Session Office for assistance.
After you have submitted the waiver allow 7-10 business days for the credit to post to your student account.
If approved, a waiver remains in effect until a Reinstatement Application Form is submitted. All forms must be submitted through the CampusCare Web site.
Student Health Insurance coverage begins on Monday, May 20, 2013 for students who register for any summer courses before Monday, June 3, 2013. If you register for courses after June 3, 2013 your coverage will begin on the date you register. In order to avoid problems with access to coverage, the CampusCare office advises you to register for courses before May 20. Coverage will end for all enrolled summer students on Thursday, August 15, 2013.
The Student Health Insurance fee is one of several fees that appear on your student account. The rate for the Summer Session 2013 will be $264. Note: Fees are subject to change prior to the start of the term. Also note that the Student Health Insurance Fee is different from the Student Health Services Fee, which is a mandatory fee that 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.
