How does the insurance work? What will I pay?

Briefly stated, first you must meet your annual deductible ($250 for the plan year). This deductible is a cumulative total to any and all healthcare providers, outside of Student Health Services.  After you have paid your annual deductible, when you go to a “preferred care provider” (a doctor that accepts the Aetna Student Health insurance) then Aetna will pay 80% and you will pay 20% of covered healthcare costs.

For complete coverage and plan details, including the prescription medication copays,  please review the Student Health Insurance Summary of Benefits and Coverage. For questions, contact Aetna Customer Service (1-800-878-1945) or the Student Health Insurance Office (703-993-2827 or 703-993-7634).
