Vital Savings Discount Program

The Vital Savings Discount Program is included with the student health insurance plan. A student can choose to purchase the Vital Savings Program for themselves or their dependents without purchasing the student health insurance plan. The Vital Savings Program is not insurance.

The Aetna Student Health plan does not include dental insurance, but the Vital Savings Discount Program does provide a discount on dental services. In most instances savings range from 15-50% discount on services from general dentistry and cleanings, to root canals, crowns, and orthodontia (braces). Actual costs and savings vary by provider and geographical area. No claims to file.

To find a dentist who participates in the Vital Savings Discount Program, a student should use the “Find a Doctor” tool located on the Aetna Student Health website.

A student can enroll in the Vital Savings program at the Aetna Student Health website.
