Health Insurance

Health Waiver Application 15-16

Full-time students are required to maintain health insurance coverage, and will be automatically billed and enrolled in the University sponsored plan. To view plan documents, or print your id card, please visit the Aetna Student Health website

*New 2015-2016: The plan is only available to students, dependents may no longer be enrolled.

Health Insurance Waiver:  Fall semester bills are due 7/13/15; therefore, if you have other comparable health insurance coverage and wish to waive coverage, please submit your waiver application well in advance of the bill due date.  It will take 1-3 business days from the time your waiver is accepted to update your balance due.  Further, if you do not waive the insurance before the coverage effective date (Fall 8/1 and 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. Fall waivers will carry forward to spring, but must be reapplied for annually each Fall.  International students must contact  Dr. Erin Heidkamp  or call 203.392.6756 to waive coverage.  If you have any questions concerning the plan coverage, or to dispute a declined insurance waiver, please contact Aetna Student Health at 877-375-4244 or visit the Aetna Student Health Website.  

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 this can not be waived.  If you have any questions concerning the accident plan coverage, or need to file an accident insurance claim, please contact Aetna Student Health at 877-375-4244 or visit Aetna Student Health Website.
