Student Health Insurance 

Web: si.illinois.edu
Phone: (217) 300-9000

Familiarize yourself with the Student Insurance website. This is where you will:

  • Access your Insurance Card
  • Extend your coverage
  • Waive / Opt-out
  • Add dependents

The Board of Trustees requires all eligible students to have health insurance coverage for the duration of their time at the University. UnitedHealthcare Student Resources underwrites the University sponsored plan, which is assessed automatically at the beginning of each semester in which the eligible student has registered for classes. Participating students receive comprehensive coverage that includes extremely low deductibles which meets all Affordable Care Act requirements. More information can be found on the Student Insurance website

Students who already have comparable coverage may opt out of the Student Health insurance plan once per academic year and have the fee refunded by submitting an approved online waiver. If the student does not opt out by the deadline of the enrollment/change period, they will be automatically enrolled in the insurance and the Student Health Insurance Fee will no longer be refunded.

Participating students receive coverage they can extend into non-registered semesters such as summer.

Insurance cards are accessible 24/7 using the online MyAccount system.

Dental insurance provided through UnitedHealthcare Student Resources is available to graduate students enrolled in on-campus graduate degree programs.
