Mandatory Health Insurance Program
Chicago State University requires full-time students to have Injury and Sickness Health Insurance. The university offers a health insurance plan underwritten by United Healthcare Insurance Company, andautomatically charges the tuition accounts of all students who enroll full-time for the plan. Th e fee is applied to students enrolled in all on-campus courses or a combination of on-campus courses plus off-campus (Extension and/or WEB) courses. Students enrolled in all WEB courses are not charged for the insurance plan.
Students generally do not enroll full time during summer semesters, therefore, the university does not automatically charge students’ accounts during summer terms for the mandatory insurance plan.
