STUDENT INSURANCE WAIVER

Student Insurance provides the student worldwide protection, 24 hours a day. The Plan has a $100 deductible per diagnosis and pays up to 70% of eligible expenses for physician and hospital expenses, lab and x-ray, surgery, ambulance transport, physical therapy, maternity expenses, mental health and substance abuse issues. The Student Insurance plan now covers most service fees at the Health Service and reduces copays for prescription medications at the Health Service Pharmacy.

Unlike an HMO or PPO, the Plan does not have a network, giving students a choice in their care and provides coverage for treatment the student receives while they are at home, at school, and wherever they may travel. When you have other insurance, the Plan coordinates with the primary carrier. Student Insurance is an economical way to reduce or eliminate out-of-pocket expenses when family health plans do not cover 100% of medical costs because of deductibles, co-payment amounts, limitations on specific benefits, and out-of-network penalties. The Student Insurance Plan complements the family health plan. Most students find it beneficial to carry both, particularly if the family plan has a deductible and/or coinsurance.

The Fall 2017 Student Insurance fee will be automatically assessed to students enrolled in 9 or more on-campus hours; Graduate Assistants under contract to the University; and International Students who are enrolled in a minimum of 3 on-campus hours. Students with other insurance coverage may request a waiver of the Student Insurance fee if their other coverage is a PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) compliant plan. Students will be required to complete a Waiver Form and provide a copy of their insurance card. The Waiver Form is available in the Student Insurance Office and on the Student Insurance website at www.eiu.edu/studentinsurance. September 1, 2017 is the last date these forms will be accepted for Fall 2017 term. For more information, call 581-5290.
