Why do I need insurance?

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 Aetna Student Health.

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.

Why should I choose the Mason Student Health Insurance Plan?

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 all the details at Aetna Student Health.
