Spring 2016 Health Insurance Waiver

Health Insurance                                                   Tuition & Fees HomeHome Button

Full-time students are required to maintain health insurance coverage, and will be automatically billed and enrolled in the University plan.

The fall coverage period is 5 months from August 1 - December 31, and the spring coverage period is 7 months from January 1 - July 31, so the bill will be higher in the spring, though it is the same monthly rate.  To view plan documents, ask questions about coverage, or print your id card, please visit the Aetna website or call 877-375-4244. 

Waivers:  If you have other comparable health insurance and wish to waive coverage to receive a credit on your bill, please submit a waiver application and allow 1 week for processing.  Further, if you do not waive the insurance before the coverage effective date (Spring 1/1), and your health provider files claims to be paid by Aetna Student Health, you will no longer be eligible to waive the insurance. Spring health waiver applications received after the filing deadline (Spring 3/15) will incur a late waiver filing fee of $65, and late waivers will not be accepted after the last day of the term.  Note:  Approved fall waivers will carry forward to the spring, a new spring waiver doesn't need to be completed unless you are just starting your enrollment in the spring, and everyone must reapply annually each fall.    

International Students:  Please email Dr. Erin Heidkamp  or call 203.392.6756 to waive coverage.

Accident Insurance:  All full-time students must remain on the accident portion of the plan, which is included in the cost of tuition/fees and can not be waived.  If you have any questions concerning the accident plan coverage, or need to file a claim, please contact Aetna Student Health at 877-375-4244 or visit Aetna Student Health Website.
