Insurance Information

The University provides all full time students with accident insurance protection. In addition to this coverage, the University offers an optional Student Sickness Insurance Plan. The premium for this plan is included in the General Fee. This fee can be waived if a student has his / her own private health insurance or is covered under their parents' policy. To waive this fee, follow this link to Aetna Student Health.

The student insurance plan pays a designated amount for most medical services. After enrolling in this plan, students will be mailed an insurance card to use for medical services and prescriptions. The Plan name is Aetna Student Health.

All full time students, as part of the student fee are covered with accident insurance protection. They are covered 24 hours a day, on and off campus. This is an excess policy, which means that the insurance will pay accident-related costs not covered by your own insurance. 

Students who are covered under a health insurance plan other than the Student Sickness Plan must have their insurance information with them each time they are seen at the Health Service. This information should include:

  • The name of their insurance company, policy, group and ID numbers  and  policyholder's name.
  • If the insurance company is an HMO.
  • Whether a referral is needed and the name of the primary care physician.
  • Participating physicians and laboratories.
  • If the insurance has a prescription plan and the names of participating pharmacies.

Having this information will expedite the paper work required during treatment and prevent billing problems with the insurance company.

The cost of the Student Sickness Insurance Plan can be found on the Aetna Student Health  web site.

The Student Sickness Insurance Plan is provided by Aetna Student Health.
