Did you miss last week's outlining program? If so, you can watch it on video. Video tapes are available in the Office of Student Services, room 310A.

Health Insurance Cards
If you enrolled in the student health insurance plan and have not yet received an insurance card, you should receive your card by the end of the week. If your card does not arrive by the beginning of next week, please contact The Chickering Group customer service at (800) 841-3140 to request a card.

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.
