Student Health Insurance Program

The University of Idaho requires all full-time, fee-paying, degree-seeking undergraduate students enrolled in 12 or more credits; graduate/Law students enrolled in 9 or more credits; and all international students to submit proof of valid health insurance as a condition of enrollment.

Students subject to the requirement may choose to rely on personal health insurance or enroll in UI's Student Health Insurance Program (SHIP).


Effective Plan Year 2017-18, UnitedHealthcare StudentResources will be administering the University of Idaho Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) benefits outside of the Student Health Clinic.                         

 

    • SHIP benefit information and links to locate in-network providers, including pharmacies, are available at www.uhcsr.com/uidaho.  
    • StudentResources customer service (5:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST) 800-767-0700.
    • Electronic proof of insurance ID cards will be available through the website above once eligibility is loaded

Claims incurred within the first four weeks of the semester, before eligibility is received, can be paid out-of-pocket or a manual update can be requested. 

To request a manual update of SHIP eligibility during the first four weeks of the semester, send an email to health@uidaho.edu stating your intention to remain enrolled in SHIP for the semester of your request (fall or spring). Include your full name, student identification number and the name of the pharmacy you are using. The information will be forwarded to the claims administrator for updating. An email notification will be sent to your Vandal email when processing is complete and you can fill your prescription.

2017-18 Costs & Benefits

SHIP fees are charged per semester as a separate line item (Medical Insurance) on your student account and can be covered by financial aid.

  • Spring Semester Coverage (includes summer break) | $840
  • Summer Coverage (for new students only) | $420
