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 on-campus courses.
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
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 should you need access to benefits prior to
when the university submits its final list of students who are to be insured. To submit
an enrollment form, go to https://studentcenter.uhcsr.com.
Students Who Take No Action: Emails are sent to every student who is charged for the
mandatory insurance plan informing them that they have been charged, and encouraging
students to submit an enrollment or waiver form. Students who do not submit an online
waiver by the announced deadline will be required to buy the mandatory insurance plan.
