Health Coverage Information

The California Institute of Integral Studies is vitally interested in making your academic and personal experience meaningful and successful. Your health and wellness are key components of that experience.  To ensure that students have access to the health care they need and to avoid the hardship of expensive medical bills, CIIS requires all full-time students to have adequate health insurance as a condition of enrollment.

For the 2020- 2021 academic year, CIIS is continuing with UnitedHealthcare, a national Preferred Provider Organization (PPO), which means students have access to In-Network and Out-of-Network providers while at school, home or during travel. With this new plan we are able to offer our students a comprehensive, benefit-rich plan at a reduced premium. UPDATE: Dependent care WILL BE available for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Students are required to enroll for the entire academic year, unless they will be graduating in December.  Premiums will be billed per semester:



8/15/19 - 8/14/20

8/15/19 - 12/31/19

1/1/20 - 8/14/20
