University of Rochester

Welcome to the University of Rochester student health insurance plan website.

The University of Rochester and Aetna Student Health have partnered for the 2013-2014 academic year to provide a comprehensive program that combines the resources of the University Health Service (UHS) for on-site primary care and mental health services with a health insurance benefit plan that provides a network of specialists and hospitals. The Plan provides coverage for illnesses and injuries that occur on or off campus, while at home, and also provides worldwide coverage.

All full-time students must enroll or waive the University-sponsored insurance each year. Students who are enrolled in the plan may also enroll their spouses, eligible domestic partners and/or dependent children.

The University-sponsored insurance plan has been designed to work in conjunction with the services offered by the University Health Service (UHS). UHS should be your first stop for health care! UHS provides a full range of confidential, high-quality primary care and mental health care for full-time students. Visits to UHS are covered by the mandatory health fee.

Key information at a glance:

  • All full-time students must complete the online Health Insurance Enrollment/Waiver process by September 16, 2013
  • If you want to waive coverage with an international health insurance plan, you must submit your waiver appeal to UHS by September 16, 2013.
  • Aetna Student Health customer service representatives are available to answer questions about the University-sponsored insurance plan and provide personal service through a national toll free telephone number -800-897-7042.
