Dependent Coverage

Dependent Coverage

Optional coverage for spouses and dependents under the age of 26 is also available.

The student must be enrolled in the Plan and complete and return a dependent enrollment form (pdf) to the Student Insurance Office on or before the fifteenth calendar day of the semester. A dependent enrollment form must be filled out each semester that coverage is wanted.

Newborns are covered from their date of birth for 31 days at no cost. An enrollment form must be returned to us by the 31st day after their birth to continue coverage on the NIU plan.
