DePaul University Student Health Insurance Plan
Through Aetna Student Health, DePaul University makes available a student health insurance plan for DePaul students and their eligible dependents. This comprehensive health plan is designed with your needs and budget in mind. The plan helps keep health care affordable and gives you the freedom to choose any doctor or other health care provider when you need care – and still receive benefits under the Plan. For 2012/2013, the annual premium for Plan I, the Basic Plan is $2,787. The annual premium for Plan II, the Comprehensive Plan, is $3,145. Premiums for 2013/2014 will be available later this summer. Coverage for spouses and dependents is also available under the plan. There is no automatic enrollment in this Plan. If you require insurance and would like to enroll in the Plan, you must complete the required Enrollment Form and submit it to the Chickering Benefit Planning Insurance Agency.
The Aetna Student Health medical insurance policy is just one option available. DePaul encourages students to investigate other medical insurance policies thoroughly prior to making an insurance decision. More information on the Aetna Student Health policy is available in the Office of Student Affairs, Room 1400, Lewis Center, 312/362-5680; or by calling Aetna Student Health at 1-800-878-1938.
International students should be familiar with basic laws affecting their non-immigrant F-1 or J-1 visa status. The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 places a particular emphasis on the need for students to take responsibility for maintaining their lawful student status. It is critical that students in F-1 and J-1 visa status maintain their lawful status throughout their program of study. If you are an international student, you should become familiar with the information on the website of DePaul's International Programs at http://international.depaul.edu.
Proof of Immunizations
IIllinois law requires that DePaul have proof on file of immunizations for all students (undergraduate, graduate, and professional) registered for at least part-time hours. The Office of Student Records http://sr.depaul.edu is responsible for collecting and reporting this information. By law, we must prohibit subsequent registration if you fail to comply with this state regulation. Please have your health care provider complete the Certificate of Immunity form and submit it to The Office of Student Records no later than August 1.
