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. If you have comparable coverage it is possible to waive this fee. 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:
Student Health Insurance coverage begins on Monday, May 18, 2015 for students who register for any summer courses before Monday, June 1, 2015. If you register for courses after June 1 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 18. Coverage will end for all enrolled summer students on August 15, 2015.
The Student Health Insurance fee is one of several fees that appear on your student account. The rate for the Summer Session 2015 is $311. 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.
Only students with comparable health insurance coverage, for example through a legal guardian or an employer, can waive out of the program by submitting the online waiver form by 11:59 p.m. CST on Monday, June 1, 2015. Students who have applied or registered after June 1 should contact the Summer Session Office for assistance.
If there are any unusual circumstances why you missed the June 1 deadline date to waive CampusCare, you may submit an official letter of Appeal explaining why the deadline was missed
