Frequently asked questions

Does my health center fee pay for insurance?

All IU Bloomington students are required to pay a mandatory health center fee. This fee is not insurance—it helps to support the IU Health Center.

How do I find my insurance information?

If you have already been billed for health insurance, find your Anthem Member ID with University Health Plan’s ID lookup. Create an Anthem account to manage your insurance information.

Do I have to keep insurance if I withdraw from all classes?

No—unless you want to. Contact OIS to request removal from the IU Plan and reimbursement of the fee during the same semester you withdraw from classes. After the semester ends, the fee cannot be reimbursed.

If you have a qualifying IU assistantship or fellowship, you may be covered by a different IU plan. Ask your academic department about your health insurance options.
