The new NIU student health insurance plan is through Aetna and is a PPO.
The cost for coverage from Jan 1, 2017 - Jul. 31, 2017 is $990.50. This breaks down to $141.50 per month for Gold Plan coverage. Fall 2017 coverage will begin on Aug. 1, 2017, so there is no lapse of coverage.
If you completed a fall 2016 waiver, you do not need to complete a spring 2017 waiver. If you waived the student insurance in the fall and would like to enroll for the spring semester, follow the instructions under "yes, I want the insurance".
