Student Insurance

UIS students on campus Welcome. The UIS Student Insurance Plan is an affordable, high-quality insurance program, designed to meet the needs of our students.  Any student taking ANY on campus or blended classes is automatically enrolled in student insurance and assessed a fee, with optional coverage for dependents.

Please be aware that if you already have insurance through another provider, you must complete a waiver.  Please see the waiver section below for more details.

Please Note: Students enrolled in only online courses are not eligible for student insurance.

Please visit to see the brochure for detailed information about the student insurance plan or to look for in-network providers.

2015 Student Insurance Summer Enrollment Form


2015 Summer Waiver Form

Exemption/Waiver Forms

  • IMPORTANT NOTICE: Exemption forms beginning with the Fall 2014 semester will be done online through a website provided by the new Student Insurance provider, Academic HealthPlans.  All UIS students will need to file their waiver annually.  If you have had a waiver on file for the 2013-2014 academic year, you will need to complete updated waiver online for the 2014-2015 academic year.
  • Once the Office of Student Insurance informs the campus that the waiver for the academic year 2014-2015 is online and live, students should be able to login.  Keep in mind that UIS must first send your student data to Academic HealthPlans for upload into their system.  If you experience difficulty logging in please attempt again at a later time as your data may have not yet been sent, but prior to the posted deadline of June 15th, 2015.
  • Please remember that the Summer term is still considered part of the 2014-2015 School Year.  If you are attending UIS for your first term this Summer, and you are completing a Student Insurance Waiver, please remember that you will need to complete a waiver for both the 2014-2015 School Year (for the Summer term) and again in August for the 2015-2016 School Year (for the Fall, Spring, and Summer terms).
  • If you are currently enrolled in the Student Insurance Plan and you are NOT taking an on-campus course this Summer, you can still continue your insurance!  Please print the form below, and take the completed form and your payment to the cashier’s office for processing!
