Welcome to the Student Insurance Office
The Fall 2016 waiver deadline was July 27th. If you were unable to access the waiver due to late admittance or other special circumstances, and would like to opt out of the WVU Aetna student health insurance plan, click here to access the Fall 2016 student health insurance waiver by August 23rd. Once completed and approved, the Fall 2016 student health insurance waiver opts the student out of the WVU Aetna student health insurance plan for the 2016-2017 academic year. Eligible students without an approved waiver on file will be automatically enrolled in the WVU Aetna plan at a cost of $791 per semester.
West Virginia University’s first priority is its students. We want them to be healthy, happy, and successful in and out of the classroom. In order to ensure that our students have access to the quality healthcare they need, when they need it, and as a measure to protect them from high, unexpected healthcare costs, all domestic students at West Virginia University and WVU Tech, enrolled in 6 or more credit hours and international students enrolled in 1 or more credit hours are required to carry health insurance coverage. This decision was made with great care by our Student Health Advisory Committee. Eligible students who do not have an approved waiver on file for the academic year are automatically enrolled in the WVU-sponsored Aetna student health insurance plan.
Please remember to bring a physical copy of your insurance card with you when seeking services at WVU Student Health or any other healthcare provider. Healthcare providers will require your insurance information prior to receiving treatment. The WVU Student Insurance Office does not share your health insurance information with any healthcare providers, including WVU Student Health.
Please note, students enrolled at Potomac State College of WVU are exempt from the insurance requirement, are not eligible for the WVU health insurance plan and do not need to complete the student health insurance waiver for the 2016-2017 academic year. Potomac State College students will be included in the student health insurance requirement for the 2017-2018 academic year.
