Student Health Insurance

The student health insurance program is administered in cooperation with Beu Health Center through the Student Health Insurance Office. Students registered and assessed fees for nine hours or more of Macomb campus classes (identified as numeric sections 001– 399), and all graduate assistants under contract to the University taking one hour or more of any type of classes, are automatically assessed the insurance fee. Students taking WIU— Quad Cities, distance and outreach, or web-based classes, as well as students with fewer than nine hours of Macomb campus classes, are not automatically assessed the student health insurance fee but may be able to purchase insurance. Additional information may be obtained by contacting the Student Health Insurance Office, located in the Lower Level of Beu Health Center, at (309) 298-1882.

Students whose coverage meets or exceeds the University waiver criteria may apply to opt out of the student insurance program by completing the online waiver application. Contact the Student Health Insurance Office at (309) 298-1882 for information on the waiver process. The final deadline for filing an insurance waiver form is the 10th day of the Fall or Spring semester or the 6th day of the Summer session.
