Continuation of Coverage 2014-2015

Do I Still Need U-SHIP Coverage After August 31st?

If I currently am enrolled in U-SHIP, and I will graduate at the end of Summer Quarter 2015, I am eligible to sign up for continuation coverage when my U-SHIP coverage terminates on August 31, 2015.

To sign up for continuation coverage:

  • Apply directly through the insurance carrier, UnitedHealthcare StudentResources.
  • Premiums must be received within 31 days of the termination date of coverage, i.e., August 31, 2015.
  • I, and my dependents currently enrolled in U-SHIP, may pay for up to 6 months of continuing insurance coverage.
  • If I find a job that pays for health insurance, I may can cancel continuation coverage, however there is no premium refund (therefore, the University of Chicago encourages students to pay for continuation coverage on a monthly basis).

Premiums for Plan Continuation Coverage are:

Student $283 / month
Spouse / Partner* $283 / month
Child* $283 / month
2 or more Children* $566 / month
Spouse / Partner + 2 or more Children* $849/month
*in addition to monthly student premium
