2012-2013 Undergraduate Catalog
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 less 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 who require less than nine hours to graduate, have graduate clearance forms on file, and register for six, seven, or eight hours during a semester may purchase the insurance coverage during the first 10 days of the term. Coverage is effective the date application is made but not prior to the opening day of the term.
Students who can produce evidence of equal or better deductible levels may waive this fee by completing an insurance waiver form. The 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. If approved, the student is not covered during the balance of their enrollment at Western Illinois University.
