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 coverage

Dates of Coverage

CampusCare coverage begins on Monday, May 13, 2024 for students who register for any summer courses before Monday, May 27, 2024. If you register for courses on or after May 27 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 13. Summer coverage ends on August 15, 2024.

Student Health Insurance Fee

The CampusCare Student Health Insurance fee is one of several fees listed on your student account. The fee for the 2024 Summer Session is $461 for a student.

Note that the CampusCare Student Health Insurance fee is different from the Student Health Services fee, which is a mandatory fee (cannot be waived). Please check the explanation of tuition and fees for more information about services covered by this fee.

Information about waiving the CampusCare Student Health Insurance benefit if you have comparable insurance or reinstating this benefit is available on the CampusCare Waivers and Reinstatement Forms web page.
