Student Health Insurance

George Mason University makes health insurance available to eligible students through Aetna Student Health. The Student Health Insurance Plan has been developed especially for Mason students, however, individual students might benefit from other policies. The plan provides coverage for illnesses and injuries locally and when you travel either domestically or abroad and is accepted by many local healthcare providers. The student health insurance plan is structured to meet federal mandates set forth by the Affordable Care Act.

Once a student graduates, if enrolled in the plan, the student is still covered under the Student Health Insurance Plan for the remainder of the policy year.

All currently enrolled Mason students can receive services at Student Health Services clinics. Student Health Services is available to you because you are a Mason student, not because you have the student insurance plan.

Vision Plan

The vision plan is included in the student health insurance plan purchase. No separate purchase or enrollment is necessary.

Dental Insurance Plan

Domestic & international students can enroll online through the Aetna Student Health website during fall and spring open enrollment. Read the dental plan FAQs for more information about the dental insurance plan. Spring open enrollment is December 4, 2023 – February 15, 2024.
