Health Insurance

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 (8/1 - 12/31) and costs $1,238.00, and the spring coverage period is 7 months (1/1 - 7/31)  and costs $1,715.00. 

To view plan documents, ask questions about coverage, or print your id card, please visit the Aetna website or call 877-375-4244.    For students keeping the insurance coverage, and using excess financial aid to cover the cost, you must authorize SCSU to apply excess financial aid to non-institutional charges.  To update your authorization, log into the MySCSU Portal go to Banner Web, then visit Financial Aid, and select Award, Award for Aid Year, Select Aid Year, Resources.


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 -2 days for processing.  If you do not waive the insurance before the coverage start date of August 1,2016, and your health provider files claims to the plan, you may no longer be eligible to waive the insurance.   Approved fall waivers will carry forward to the spring, a new waiver doesn't need to be completed unless you are just starting your enrollment in the spring.  All students must reapply annually each fall. 


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


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.
