Student Health Insurance August 2012- August 2013

STUDENT ACCIDENT & ILLNESS INSURANCE PLAN 
PLAN ADMINISTRATOR: CONSOLIDATED HEALTH PLANS


ELIGIBILITY

A student is eligible for enrollment in the university health insurance if he/she has:

  • Applied before the enrollment deadline
  • Enrolled for coursework (6 credit minimum for undergraduate students) and actively attended class for the first 31 days after coverage begins

MEDICAL COVERAGE

Please review the Benefit Summary.  It is the individual's responsibility to become familiar with plan benefits.   Current network providers may be viewed at www.mycignaforhealth.com.

HOW TO ENROLL

  • International students must  self-enroll in the university plan or another private plan that meets the guidelines under the Affordable Care Act.  Enrollment must start the first day of a semester or the date a student moves into campus housing. 
  • All other students should visit the website, (www.chpstudent.com) website, where they can download more plan information and enroll on-line, if desired. If using the conventional mail system, the enrollment card and premium are sent directly to Consolidated Health Plans, not KU.

BENEFIT PROCEDURE

In the event of injury or sickness, we strongly encourage students to contact and/or make an appointment through Clinical Services to insure optimum use of the plan.  The preferred provider organization with this policy is Cigna Healthcare. Always confirm that the provider still participates with Cigna. Using and out-of-network provider will increase your healthcare fees.
