CampusCare is an affordable self-funded student health benefit program that has been providing comprehensive health care benefits to eligible enrolled students and their covered dependents at the University of Illinois Chicago, Rockford and Peoria campuses since 2004.

The University of Illinois requires all students to be covered by major medical health insurance, therefore all students are automatically enrolled in CampusCare and assessed the CampusCare fee on their tuition when registering for courses that are charged with tuition & mandatory fees. There are no enrollment forms to complete. CampusCare qualifies for minimal essential coverage under the Affordable Care Act as a self-funded health benefit program and is not a licensed insurance company.

Eligible students include all registered Undergraduate, Graduate, and Health Professional students taking at least one class that charges them with tuition and mandatory fees. Eligible fellows working under a T/32, F/32, T/42, T/76, or D43 grant at UIC are also eligible for CampusCare (to verify if you are eligible please contact your program administrator). To verify if you are a member, students can view the CampusCare charge by going to their student account bill (E-Bill). If you are not charged with the CampusCare Fee you are not a member of CampusCare. “Online only” students and “Option B” students are NOT eligible for CampusCare. **Please note: Online only students who are charged with tuition & all other fees will be charged the CampusCare fee, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, therefore a waiver must be submitted with your current Health Insurance information to remove our fee.**

CampusCare does not provide an extension of coverage or Cobra policy for Fall or Spring semesters. Students who are taking a leave of absence or graduating cannot continue coverage to the next semester in Fall or Spring. Please refer to the Summer Coverage page for more information regarding your CampusCare coverage options.

Students with comparable health insurance coverage, for example through a legal guardian or an employer, can waive out of the program by submitting the online Waiver Form before the Enrollment Period Deadline Date.

Please Note: CampusCare is your health benefits coverage program, we are NOT a clinic where you can obtain medical services. Please contact your CampusCare Primary Care Provider’s office for all appointments, medical issues, or medical questions.

Important features of the CampusCare program:

  • All covered services must be provided or authorized by a CampusCare Health Primary Care Provider, unless they meet the Medical Emergency guidelines as stated in the Certificate of Coverage or obtain a preauthorized referral by the CampusCare Medical Director or designee.
  • All services provided outside a designated CampusCare Health Center require an authorized referral prior to receiving services. Referrals will not cover services retroactively.
  • Unauthorized services provided elsewhere are the enrolled member’s full financial responsibility.
  • CampusCare is considered a secondary payer to all health insurance plans, except in the case a member has Medicaid/Public Aid, then CampusCare will be the primary payer. In all cases CampusCare will only provide payment as stated in the Certificate of Coverage.
