Student Health Insurance

Main Content

Health Insurance Requirement

SIUC requires all students taking on-campus courses to have health insurance. To meet this mandate, all students taking on-campus courses will be billed the student health insurance fee. Students who already have comparable health insurance coverage may waive the fee by completing the waiver process prior to the posted deadlines. All students taking on-campus courses, who do not complete the waiver process by the posted deadline, will be automatically enrolled in the SIU Student Health Insurance Plan and will not be eligible for a refund.  If it is your intent to enroll in the student health insurance plan, it is strongly recommended that you enroll yourself as soon as possible. Doing so assures you have access to off-campus benefits on the effective date of the policy.

SIU Student Health Insurance Plan

The Student Health Insurance Plan provides health insurance coverage that compliments the Student Health Center, covering expenses such as pharmaceuticals, immunizations, and off-campus services such as emergency room, hospitalizations, surgery, ambulance and specialty care.

Aetna Student Health and Gallagher Student Health are working together to support the health insurance needs of the students at Southern Illinois University.
