Welcome Southern Illinois University Carbondale Students

The Student Medical Insurance Plan provides health insurance coverage that compliments the on-campus primary care services, covering off-campus services such as emergency room, hospitalizations, surgery, ambulance and specialty care. Students are automatically enrolled in the Student Medical Insurance Plan (SMIP) as a condition of SIUC enrollment, registration and the assessment of the Student Medical Benefit Fee.
