Students (with 12 hours or more) are automatically billed and enrolled in the mandatory health plan. Students have the option of waiving before the January 19, 2008 deadline if they have equal or better coverage. The basic Student Health Plan for accident and sickness is mandatory for students, undergraduate and graduate, who enroll with 12 hours or more. The fee applies to all on-campus semester hours and students with a combination of off-campus semester hours and on-campus semester hours. Students are automatically charged a fee for student health insurance on their tuition accounts through the Bursar’s office when the enrolled hours become 12 or more. The Spring 2008 health insurance cost per student is $431.00. There is an additional cost to insure dependents. Please contact the Student Health Insurance office for more information at (773) 995-4533.
Students enrolled in the insurance plan for the Spring 2008 semester will receive coverage until the beginning of the Fall 2008 semester. Students are provided with coverage on-campus as well as any of the open choice PPO Plan locations.
Part-time students now eligible for coverage
Part-time students (enrolled in 6-11 credit hours) are eligible to enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan on a voluntary enrollment basis. Enrollment forms are available in the Student Health Insurance Office.
A cancellation form must be submitted every semester a student enrolls in 12 credit hours or more. Students with equal or better coverage may apply for cancellation of the mandatory fee before the January 19, 2008 deadline. A copy of insurance card and ID must accompany cancellation form. The cancellation forms are available during registration or may be obtained from the Office of Student Health Insurance before the Spring deadline.
NOTE: Don’t wait until you receive a bill with the insurance charge itemized, or you may miss the deadline to cancel. Cancellation requests are not accepted after the cancellation deadline January 19, 2008. Students insured under the plan will receive their ID cards by mail. Please make sure a current address is on file with the Registrar’s Office.
