Health Insurance is Mandatory.
Chicago State University provides a mandatory Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan underwritten
by United Healthcare Insurance Company. All full-time students (undergraduates enrolled
in 12 hours or more, graduates enrolled in 9 hours or more, and doctoral students
enrolled in 6 hours or more) are automatically charged for the plan. All international
students are eligible for the plan and must be enrolled on a mandatory basis. The
fee is applied to the accounts of students enrolled in all on-campus courses or a
combination of off-campus (Extension/online) and on-campus courses.
Students must complete an online form to waive out of or enroll into the mandatory
CSU insurance plan every fall and spring semester.
To Waive: Students who have health insurance coverage are able to cancel the mandatory health
insurance plan by going online during the specified waiver/enrollment period and completing
the waiver form provided there.
To Enroll: Students who do not have insurance or simply want to keep the mandatory health insurance
plan must go online to complete and submit an enrollment form. Submitting an enrollment
form will expedite activation of your enrollment should you need access to insurance
coverage before the university submits its final list of students who are to be insured.
Period of Coverage:Students enrolled in the mandatory insurance plan for the Fall 2012 term will be covered
from August 19, 2012 through January 4, 2013. You may obtain a copy of the 2012-2013
Student Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan brochure from the Office of Student Health
Insurance or visit http://www.uhcsr.com/.
Students Who Take No Action: Any student who does not submit an online waiver by the announced deadline will be
required to buy the university insurance plan. Waiver/enrollment periods and deadlines
are published below as well as in the academic calendar each semester.
Waiver/Enrollment Period and Deadline:The waiver/enrollment period for the Fall 2012 term will open on June 18, 2012. The
deadline for submitting a waiver or enrollment form will be 12:00 midnight on August
Part-time students enrolled in 6-11 credit hours may participate in the university
provided plan on a voluntary basis. Part-time and full-time students who are insured
in the plan may insure their eligible dependents and domestic partners on a voluntary
basis. The enrollment period, deadline, and period of coverage are the same as those
for CSU students.
