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
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
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 24, 2012.
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.
