Welcome to University of Pennsylvania student health insurance plan website.

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.

Things to know for 2015-2016 Policy Year:

Go-Green Program: Aetna will no longer automatically mail plastic insurance ID cards. To print an insurance ID card go to the "Print your ID card" link on the left side of the screen. You may order a plastic ID card by calling Aetna Customer Service at 800.841.5374.

The Annual Policy Year is 8/1/2015 - 7/31/2016.

The Fall Enrollment/Waiver deadline is August 31, 2015 and the Spring Enrollment/Waiver deadline is January 31, 2016.

Graduate students wishing to enroll with a start date of 7/1/15 should contact the Penn Student Insurance Office for an application. The period of coverage will be 7/1/15-7/31/15. Graduate Students will then need to re-enroll in the Annual policy effective 8/1/15-7/31/16.
