The George Mason Student Health Insurance Plan is structured to meet the federal mandates set out by the Affordable Care Act. Due to the Health Care Reform this information is subject to change as regulations are issued and interpretation evolves over the next few years.
The University has renewed the contract with Aetna Student Health to administer the 2012-2013 Student Health Insurance Plan. In order to meet minimum Health Care Reform mandates, benefits will increase as below:
- Aggregate maximum $100,000 per condition, per policy year
- Drug prescriptions $100,000 per policy year
- Preventative services covered 100% at Student Health
- Services and at Preferred-Care Providers in the Aetna Student Health network
- Contraceptives covered 100% at Student Health Services and at Preferred-Care-Providers in the Aetna Student Health network.
Healthcare.gov, run by the US Department of Health and Human Services, offers useful information about the Affordable Care Act and Health Care Reform, insurance, and information about healthcare.
Unexpected medical expenses could jeopardize your health, your ability to complete your education, and your financial future. The time and financial commitment required to obtain a formal education is an invaluable investment in your future. Protect your investment and yourself by always carrying health insurance. George Mason University makes health insurance available to eligible students through a Aetna Student Health Insurance plan.
Health insurance not only protects you, but also protects others in your family, as well as those in the community. Health insurance allows individuals to seek early treatment for illness. Students without insurance tend to stay sick longer, placing their family, and the Mason community, at risk.
All currently enrolled students are eligible to receive healthcare at our facilities. There is no charge to be seen by one of our health care providers. There are nominal fees for lab work, medications, treatments, dressings, and supplies.
You might "age-off" while at Mason. If you are covered by your parents’ policy, please review it carefully to make certain you are still eligible for coverage throughout your college years.
The Mason Student Health Insurance Plan has been developed especially for Mason students. The plan provides coverage for illnesses and injuries locally and when you travel either domestically or abroad.
The Mason plan is accepted by many local healthcare providers; check-out Doc-Find.
Also included in the health insurance plan is a Vision Discount Program, as well as a Dental Discount Program. A voluntary Dental Insurance Plan is available at an additional cost. Routine health exams are not covered. Check out all the details at Aetna Student Health.
During the open enrollment dates, you can enroll online if you meet the eligibility requirements. Or you can call Aetna Student Health’s Customer Service at 1-800-878-1945. Stop by the Insurance Office if you have questions.
