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 full-time international students are eligible for the plan and must be enrolled on a mandatory basis. The fee applies to students enrolled in all on-campus courses or a combination of off -campus (Extension) and on-campus courses.
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. Students who do not have insurance or simply want to keep the plan must go online to complete the enrollment form to expedite activation of your enrollment. 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 in the academic calendar each semester. Students must complete an online form to waive out of or enroll into the insurance plan every fall and spring semester.
