Health Insurance

SCSU requires that all full-time students maintain health insurance coverage.  Therefore, all full-time students will initially be eligible for enrollment and billed under the University sponsored plan.  Students who satisfy the insurance requirements through another comparable plan may opt to waive the sickness portion of the insurance coverage and receive credit on their bill statement.  The accident portion of the insurance may not be waived and is built into the University General Fee.  

If you have any questions concerning the student health insurance plan, accident insurance claims, or to dispute a declined sickness insurance waiver application, please contact Aetna Student Health toll-free at 877-375-4244 or visit the  Aetna Student Health Website.  To view the student health insurance policy for coverage detailsclick here
