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 full time international students are required to purchase this insurance plan for the school year. The fee is applied to the accounts of full time students enrolled in all on-campus courses or a combination of off -campus (extension/online) and on-campus courses.
Waiver/Enrollment Process and Deadline
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. The period of coverage will be January 5, 2012 through August 18, 2012.
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 Deadlines: The waiver/enrollment period for the Spring 2012 semester will open on November 21, 2011. The deadline for submitting a waiver or enrollment form will be 12:00 midnight on January 20, 2012.
Part-Time Students, Spouses and Dependents Eligible for Coverage
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.
