June 3 – Important deadline – CampusCare for Summer 2013

Summer Coverage will begin on May 20, 2013 and will end on August 15, 2013.

 

  • All students that are registered for the summer semester (4 and/or 8 week sessions) will be automatically enrolled and charged the CampusCare fee of $264 on their student account UNLESS they have already waived out in previous semesters.  Please check your student account to see all charges for your tuition and fees.

If you see the CampusCare charge of $264 on your student account this means you are a CampusCare member for the summer semester.

 

If you do not see a CampusCare charge on your student account, this means you are not a member of CampusCare and will not be charged in future semesters.  If you do not see the CampusCare charge on your account and would like to have CampusCare coverage for the summer, you can reinstate your coverage by going to www.uic.edu/hsc/campuscare on the bottom left-hand side of the website under online forms.  You will have to log in with your Net ID and Password and complete the reinstatement form.  

If you have other insurance coverage and want to waive out, add or drop dependents, please go to: www.uic.edu/hsc/campuscare click on the bottom left-hand side of the website under online forms and complete the applicable form.  It will take 3-5 business days to process your request and an email confirmation will be sent to you for your records.  Once you waive out of the CampusCare program you are waived out forever and do not have to continuously waive out in future semesters.

The final deadline to make any changes to your CampusCare Summer coverage is June 3, 2013.  Additional information about printing ID cards, locating physicians, benefits of the program, is available at: www.uic.edu/hsc/campuscare
