Waiting for an insurance card and need medical care?
All students who have enrolled in the student health insurance plan are retroactively covered as of August 15, 2005. However, it takes a few weeks for IIT and Chickering to process enrollments. Please don't be alarmed if your doctor or pharmacist tells you that you are not covered by insurance. If your account reflects that you have been charged for health insurance, you are covered but your enrollment is still waiting to be processed.

Students who requested early enrollment processing before August 22, should receive insurance cards in the next few weeks. All other enrolled students should receive insurance cards by the middle of October.

If you donít have an insurance card yet and need to see a doctor or have a prescription filled, you have a few options. First, depending on what is wrong, you can use the Student Health Center at IIT, where you don't need the insurance information. If you prefer to see your own doctor, you will have to pay out-of-pocket and get reimbursed from Chickering. Students needing to have prescriptions filled will also need to pay out-of-pocket and submit a claim form. (See the Student Health Insurance FAQ for links to claim forms.) Alternatively, some doctors might process your claim without an insurance card if you explain that you have student insurance and are waiting for your card. You will need to provide the doctor with IIT's policy number, 724532, and your ID number, which is your social security number. Temporary insurance cards with this information are available in the Student Health Insurance Plan brochure that was mailed to your homes during the summer. You can also pick up a copy of this brochure at the Registar's Office.
