All Other Undergraduate Students
Concordia University Chicago has always been concerned about the health and well-being of its students.
Learn more about complimentary the Accident Insurance for all full-time enrolled students and student-athletes.
While the aforementioned accident plan does provide a layer of support, the University strongly recommends that every student obtain comprehensive medical coverage. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) gives millions of individuals with too little or no insurance access to health plans at different cost levels. The law also provides financial assistance to those who qualify based on family size and income.
- Healthcare.gov is a federal government website that links to the health insurance exchanges offered across the country.
- GetCoveredIllinois.gov is a health insurance marketplace site for Illinois, where you can shop and sign up for insurance.
- GetCoveredIllinois hotline, 888-809-2796 is a help desk that answers questions about signing up and shopping for insurance in Illinois and Medicaid.
- In addition, if you have interest in obtaining coverage for the upcoming school year there are a number of short-term plans available that are flexible and affordable that could provide you with a basic level of coverage.
- www.1stagency.com will provide you with some coverage options and quotes. Please note this is not a University-sponsored plan, although the plans are available through First Agency, Inc., a longtime insurance provider for the institution. In addition, please understand these short-term medical plans do not meet the minimum requirements of the Affordable Care Act.
As a student, your well-being is our utmost concern, and as such, we want to make sure that you are well informed of the many changes that are impacting student health care.
If you have any questions about student health insurance options or health services in general, please do not hesitate to contact The Office of the Dean of Students at 708-209-3005 or by email at dos@CUChicago.edu.
