Enroll or Waive

Confirming or Waiving Your U-SHIP Enrollment

  • You must complete the enrollment/ waiver application each year here.
  • Your alternate insurance plan must meet all of the criteria outlined on this checklist.
  • Without taking action, you will be automatically billed the first installment for U-SHIP. The charge will only be removed from your student account when your waiver has been approved.
  • After the enrollment period, your insurance selection will remain on file through August 31, 2018 (unless you experience a qualifying life event necessitating a mid-year change).
  • Dependents are not automatically enrolled in U-SHIP; you must add them to your coverage each year. Note: students who enroll dependents 14 years or older on U-SHIP will also be assessed a quarterly dependent life fee.

Students approved to register as a student after the insurance deadline must submit a manual insurance enrollment/waiver application within 10 days of registration if they wish to waive U-SHIP coverage. Failure to do so will result in the student remaining enrolled in U-SHIP coverage for the remainder of the plan year. Please contact the on-campus insurance coordinators at uchicagoadvocates@uhcsr.com or (773) 834-4543 (Option 2) for the manual insurance enrollment/ waiver application.
