Student Health Insurance-Spring 2018

Dear Spring 2018 Admits,

We look forward to welcoming you to CIIS in January!


PLEASE READ THIS EMAIL CAREFULLY, AS IT CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR ACCESS TO AND ENROLLMENT IN CIIS’s STUDENT PLAN WITH UNITED HEALTHCARE.  If you do not follow the required steps, you may be automatically enrolled in and responsible for the charges associated with the healthcare plan.


  1. ONLY ELIGIBLE STUDENTS ARE PERMITTED TO ENROLL IN OUR UNITED HEALTHCARE PLAN.  Eligible students are defined as full time students with a California address (as listed in CIIS’s system).  To check what defines full time in your program (note that each program has a different credit definition of full time) and/or check your address in our system, please see:  


Students intending to be eligible for our health insurance plan must update their address in CIIS’s system through the Registrar Office:

                SUS / ACTCM – no later than 1/16/18

                SCT / SPPH – no later than 1/23/18


Students who do NOT meet both eligibility criteria will not be permitted to enroll in CIIS’s plan.  As such, they also do NOT need to waive health insurance coverage.

    1. Enroll in the United Healthcare Plan
    2. Waive enrollment by showing proof of comparable insurance


Eligible students who do not complete either of the above actions will be automatically enrolled in the United Healthcare plan for the entire year, with the charge levied to their student account.


The open enrollment and waiver period is effective now until 1/16/18 (for SUS/ACTCM students) or 1/23/18 (for SCT/SPPH students).  Rates are listed at the bottom.  Detailed plan benefits, enrollment and waiver portals, FAQ’s, and more are available on the Gallagher Student Health Website: Options are available for spouse and child add on.  Students will be billed through their student account following their enrollment on the Gallagher website. 


If you have any questions after visiting the Gallagher Student Health Insurance site, please email



UnitedHealthcare is the largest, national insurance carrier.  The plan is fully compliant with the provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and has several key features including:

  • Low Annual Deductibles:  $200 In-Network and $400 Out-of-Network
  • Coverage at 80% In-Network and 60% Out-of-Network
  • $25 Office Visits for In-Network Providers (includes specialists and mental health providers)
  • Preventive care services covered at 100% In-Network
  • Prescription drug coverage: $15 copay/ Tier 1, $50 copay/ Tier 2, 20% coinsurance/ Tier 3
  • TeleHealth services available through Healthiest You
  • Wellness discounts including Vision and Dental


All full-time students with a California address will be required to purchase the UnitedHealthcare Plan unless proof of comparable insurance is provided during the waiver and enrollment period now until 1/16/18 (for SUS/ACTCM students) or 1/23/18 (for SCT/SPPH students.  Note that the waiver form asks for detailed information about your comparable plan.  These questions are consistent with what other health insurance programs need to approve such waivers.


Thank you for your attention to this important change in our student health program.  You can also access more information online by visiting and clicking on ‘My Benefits and Plan Information’ located to the left.
