It is the policy of the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign that all eligible students be covered by health insurance. The University provides a Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) to assist students in meeting this requirement. The SHIP covers students who need hospitalization and specialized care, as well as general care for sickness and accidents. This SHIP offers spouse and dependent children coverage on a voluntary enrollment basis as well.
The University seeks one vendor who can administer an HMO model benefit plan for all eligible students, in accordance with all applicable insurance requirements of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and the State of Illinois. Specific requirements and parameters are outlined in the body of this document.
The University will also consider a benefit plan for student athletes, from vendors who also provide a response outlining a comprehensive SHIP for all students. Pricing for a student athlete plan should be separate and distinct from the general SHIP. Failure to provide a student athlete plan will not disqualify you from this solicitation.
