Does the Student Health Insurance Plan cover me when I am off campus, in my hometown, traveling or studying abroad?

Yes, the Student Health Insurance Plan covers you during semester breaks, summer vacation, and even if you’re traveling or studying abroad. You’ll be covered for the period for which you have paid the premium.

You can see any provider in Aetna’s national network and receive preferred benefits.  To find a participating provider, use the DocFind tool on the Aetna Student Health website  or call 1.866.746.6590.   Remember, you are free to use a non-participating provider, but you will be responsible for paying a larger portion of the bill.

In addition to being covered for medical treatment and services, you will also be covered for Emergency Medical Evacuation, Repatriation of Remains, Security and Political Evacuation, Natural Disaster Evacuation and Travel Assistance Services through On Call International, the 24-hour worldwide assistance service. All services must be arranged for in advance and provided by On Call International. Any services not arranged by On Call International will not be considered for payment.

  • When studying or traveling abroad, keep your Student Health Insurance ID card with you and take a copy of the brochure for reference.
  • When outside of the United States, you will likely be asked to pay for your medical care first and will then need to seek reimbursement. Covered expenses will be reimbursed on an Out-of-Network basis.
  • When you submit claims for reimbursement, you will need to have the itemized bill(s) translated into English and include a letter informing the claims administrator that you are seeking reimbursement for charges previously paid.
  • Please ensure that your name, ID number, address (to receive your reimbursement check), and your school’s name are on the bill.
