School Health Insurance FAQ
Students are automatically enrolled in the coverage once they are billed for their first semester of tuition and are responsible for those insurance charges unless they provide a valid insurance waiver during the open waiver period (August 15 - September 30). Please be sure to verify your enrollment status at the start of each billing period. Insurance for all registered students will continue to be charged until the student officially graduates or is permanently withdrawn from the University.
Continuing students (which includes students returning from leave), may waive coverage only once per year during the open waiver period which is from August 15 to September 30.
Students who have their own coverage, or are covered by a parent or spouse’s insurance plan may waive the university-sponsored insurance during the open waiver period only as stated above. Basic science students and all clinical students who elect to waive the school-sponsored health insurance plan must fill out an electronic waiver form by logging onto Aetna Student Health.
Once a waiver is applied to a student’s account, the waiver remains in effect until the following August or until a student requests to be reinstated in the University-sponsored insurance plan. Continuing student waivers will be accepted at the start of the annual coverage period (August 15) up until the waiver deadline (September 30). Waivers received after the deadline cannot be accepted. Incomplete or late waivers received by Aetna Student Health will not be processed and students will be billed insurance for the remainder of the academic year (August to August).
Important: New students are automatically enrolled in the Aetna health plan once they are billed for their first semester of tuition and are responsible for those insurance charges unless they provide valid insurance waiver during the open waiver period. Your next opportunity to waive will be the following August.
- If you are a new enrollment for the September semester, you have from August 15 to September 30 to request a waiver of the insurance.
- If you are a new enrollment for the January semester, you have from December 15 to January 30 to request a waiver of the insurance.
- If you are a new enrollment for the May semester, you have from April 15 to May 30 to request a waiver of the insurance.
Students who have previously waived the university-sponsored insurance must do so by submitting an electronic reinstatement form available by logging into myRoss. Students must file reinstatement requests in a timely manner to avoid any gaps or lapses in insurance coverage.
At the beginning of each coverage period, students, at their own cost, may elect additional coverage for their legal spouse and/or dependent(s). For this additional coverage, students must fill out the online Enrollment Form available from Aetna Student Health. All premiums for spouse or dependent coverage must be made directly to Aetna Student Health. For further information on spouse and dependent coverage, including application due dates please visit the Aetna Student Health website or call 1-877-381-3551.
You are highly encouraged to create an Aetna Navigator account to easily access your personal information, print and request ID cards and review your claims.
