Information on Insurance through UNI

The University of Northern Iowa is concerned about the potential threat the high cost of health and dental care may pose to a student’s financial well being. For this reason, the University offers health and dental insurance coverage to students through the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP), a group policy administered by Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Iowa, and the Student Dental Insurance, a group policy administered by Delta Dental of Iowa through The University of Iowa Benefits Office.

To be eligible for the student health insurance you must be a registered student attending on-campus classes at the time coverage begins. You will not need to re-enroll at the beginning of each academic year unless changing your coverage. Coverage will end on the last day of the month in which you cease to be a student. After leaving UNI, you may enroll in SHIP for Departing Students to continue your coverage up to 12 months.

Health insurance coverage is in effect at school and during vacation periods, 24 hours a day, worldwide. You may seek care from any medical or dental provider you choose. However, if you use a Wellmark Blue Cross & Blue Shield Classic Blue or a Delta Dental provider, your costs will generally be much lower.

If you decide this insurance is suitable for your situation, you may complete an enrollment form and return it to the University of Northern Iowa Student Health Clinic Insurance Office. For additional information, you may contact the UNI Student Health Clinic Insurance Office at (319) 273-7736 or e-mail ship@uni.edu.
