The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign works year-round to provide Student Health Insurance to over 20,000 students and dependents. We are proud to offer one of the most comprehensive, affordable health insurance plans in the Big 10.
Health care costs have continued to rise, making student insurance more important than ever. The charges associated with treatment of a serious illness or injury can be catastrophic, and has the potential to permanently derail a student's academic progress and overall college experience.
The University of Illinois has partnered with UnitedHealthcare to process the comprehensive, major medical plan we offer to students. From prescription drugs to mental health care, inpatient surgical care to outpatient and emergency services, our plan has our students covered.
