Need medical coverage for your dependent?

If you are a student looking for coverage, Aetna Student Health℠ has a plan for you. Aetna Student Health gives you access to care by working closely with your school and with a network of doctors, hospitals, pharmacies and specialists throughout the country.

Covered students may also enroll their lawful spouse, domestic partner and/or dependent children up to the age of 26, as long as dependents reside with the registered student.

To enroll the dependent(s) of a covered student, please on the “Enroll” link below. You may also request an Enrollment Form be sent in the mail by calling customer service at (877) 626-2314.

Need a dental discount program?

Aetna Vital Savings is a dental discount program that helps you and your dependents save. In most instances, savings range from 15-50 percent on services from general dentistry and cleanings to root canals, crowns, and orthodontia (braces).* There are no claims to file.

You do not have to be enrolled in the NU-sponsored medical plan to enroll in the dental discount program.
