What does this change mean to you?
Beginning August 21, 2013 the start of the new health insurance plan year, claims will no longer be processed by the UIUC Student Health Insurance office.  All NEW claims for the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 plan years must be sent to UnitedHealthcare for processing.  The address for submission of claims is located on the back of your health insurance card.
All direct inquiries regarding NEW claims processed after August 21, 2013 should be directed to UnitedHealthcare at 888-224-4883 or
Will the Student Health Insurance office remain on campus?
Yes, students will have the option to visit the current Student Health Insurance office located at 506 South Wright Street, Henry Administration Building, Room 100A, Urbana, Illinois or call 217-333-0165 for general questions and inquiries (e.g. assist with printing ID cards, respond to questions regarding plan exemption status, reinstatement or extension of coverage and claims processed prior to August 21, 2013).  
The Student Health Insurance Enrollment/Change period for the Spring 2014 semester will run 01/18/2014-02/27/2014.  This is the only time during the Fall 2013 semester that students can apply for reinstatement, dependent coverage, or exemption from the student health insurance plan.  No applications will be accepted after the February 27, 2014 deadline.
How do I apply for an Exemption?
Students can apply for exemption from the Student Health Insurance plan online by visiting choosing “Waiver Form.”    Beginning this school year, all students applying and approved for an exemption for the first time will now have to re-apply for the exemption annually.  Students that exempted out of the plan in Fall 2013 do not need to reapply for the exemption until Fall 2014.  To check your exemption status, look on your e-bill to see if you have been charged the UIUC Student Insurance fee (undergrad fee $254.00, graduate fee $328.00).  If you have not been charged the fee, you are not covered by this plan.  Some students may not qualify to be assessed the fee.  
What steps do I take to cover my dependent and/or spouse?

Students covered under the Student Health Insurance plan for the 2013-2014 plan year can enroll their dependents by accessing and clicking on the “Enrollment Form – Dependent” link.   To avoid any delays in processing of your dependent enrollment forms, the student will need to early enroll themselves in the plan prior to sending the completed dependent forms to United Healthcare.   Earlyenrollment can be done by accessing and clicking on the “Enrollment Form” link.
I previously exempted out of the plan but need coverage this year, what do I do?
Reinstatement into the Student Health Insurance plan must be done in person at the Student Health Insurance office Henry Administration Building 506 S. Wright Street. For questions regarding the Student Health Insurance plan or the upcoming changes please contact the Student Health Insurance office at 217-333-0165 or
