SIU Student Health Insurance Plan

The Student Health Insurance Plan provides health insurance coverage that compliments the on-campus primary care services, covering off-campus services such as emergency room, hospitalizations, surgery, ambulance and specialty care. Students are automatically enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan as a condition of SIUC enrollment, registration and the assessment of the Student Health Benefit Fee.
