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 the insurance plan and are
eligible for the plan. The fee is applied to the accounts of students enrolled
in all on-campus courses or a combination of off -campus (Extension) and
Students are required to complete an online form to waive out of or enroll
into the mandatory CSU insurance plan every fall and spring semester.
Failure to submit an online waiver or enrollment form by the deadline will
obligate students to pay the full-time (FT) Student Insurance Premium
coverage indicated on your tuition bill. A confirmation email from the
UHCSR Student Center will be required for any waiver dispute.
To Waive: Students who have health insurance coverage that is at least
comparable to the CSU plan are able to waive the mandatory health
insurance plan by going online during the specified waiver/enrollment
period and completing the waiver form provided there. To submit a
waiver form, go to https://studentcenter.uhcsr.com.
To Enroll: Students who do not have insurance or simply want to keep
the plan must go online to complete and submit an enrollment form.
Submitting an enrollment form will help expedite activation of your

enrollment form, go to https://studentcenter.uhcsr.com.
Students Who Take No Action: Emails are sent to every student who
