  • Part-Time Student Insurance Enrollment for Part-Time, Online and Off Campus Students for Fall 2021

    READ MORE

    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 also 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. 

    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.

    Fall Semester 2021 students, who are registered for 5 hours, may purchase Student Insurance for the semester by submitting the Fall 2021 Enrollment Form. The electronic form is available in the students PAWS account and on the Student Insurance website at: https://www.eiu.edu/studentinsurance/enrollment.php. September 3, 2021 is the last date this form will be accepted for the Fall 2021 term.

    The cost is $109.95.

    For more information about the Student Insurance Plan, please call 217-581-5290.
