 Coverage

​Annual coverage begins August 15th and ends August 14th the next year. Coverage can be prorated by month within the policy year. Each month starts on the 15th and ends on the 14th. 

Both new and continuing international students starting during the Fall 2017 semester will have coverage beginning August 15, 2017 - August 14, 2018.

Students enrolling for a first day of coverage between August 15th and September 14th will be charged the same annual rate and will have coverage effective 24 hours after their enrollment request is processed by the school. Coverage is not retroactive.​ 

Please note: If you decide to withdraw from the coverage due to a Leave of Absence or withdrawal from school before the annual coverage period ends, you will be responsible to email health@thechiagoschool.edu​ to request for refund at the prorated monthly rate.​

 Waiver Application

If you apply to waive, you must document evidence of coverage through an online waiver submission by the deadline of each semester.  Completion of the waiver submission will inform you if your waiver is approved or not. 

Waiver deadline for Fall 2017 is Sep. 3rd, 2017​​

  • ​If approved, you will be required to send evidence to health@thechicagoschool.edu One of the following documents can be considered as evidence:

  1. ​Copy of your insurance ID card

  2. Copy of a letter from your insurance company indicating your coverage and effective date and length of coverage.​

If approved, your waiver is valid through the duration of the coverage year. All interantional students must waive out on an annual basis - an approved waiver does not cover the length of a degree program.

​If denied, you will be automatically enrolled in the GeoBlue plan.​
