The University of Illinois requires all students be covered by major medical health insurance throughout their student careers.
Students do have options for coverage. Because of the Federal Health Reform law that was signed, children are allowed to stay on their parents’ insurance plan until age 26, whether or not they are enrolled in school. Therefore, many students opt to remain on their parents’ insurance during the majority of their student career.
The Student Health Services Fee is assessed to all students at UIC. The Student Health Services Fee should not be confused with CampusCare, the student health insurance program.
UIC Student Health and Wellness Rockford should NOT be confused with CampusCare. Our clinic is a medical office that accepts all students regardless of health coverage. We are not CampusCare, but a clinic that is the primary location/Network for all CampusCare insured students in Rockford.
Together, the Student Health Services Fee and CampusCare (or your personal insurance) work in conjunction to provide comprehensive medical coverage to our students.
These are your coverage options during your student career:
- Parent’s private insurance coverage
- Private individual health insurance coverage
- Illinois Affordable Health care plans or Public Aid plans
- CampusCare (Student Health Benefit plan offered by UIC)
A number of students enroll in CampusCare, the student health benefit program that is provided by UIC. This program qualifies under the Affordable Care Act as a self-funded health benefit program. CampusCare is not a licensed insurance company. The CampusCare fee is automatically assessed along with other tuition and fees to the student account (E-Bill) once the student registers for courses. There is no enrollment form to complete.
