The IU Postdoctoral Fellow and Professional Student Insurance Plan is sponsored by Indiana University and administered by Aetna. All information on rates, plan benefits, claim procedures and exclusions are stated in the Student Health Insurance Plan Summary (PDF). The policy number for IU is 812801. If you would like to waive this plan you can access a waiver here.

Eligibility

Participation in the Student Health Insurance Plan is mandatory for Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM) students, School of Dentistry (IUSD) students, and Postdoctoral Fellows unless proof of comparable coverage is presented, and a waiver is filed by the waiver deadline. An email that explains the waiver process will be sent out each plan year. Students who are currently taking classes will be automatically enrolled in the insurance plan each semester and the cost of the premium will be billed through the Bursar. Postdoctoral Fellows will be automatically enrolled from the date of their appointment and the premium will be fully subsidized by the university or external funding agency.

Dependents

Eligible IUSM and IUSD students

Eligible students may also insure their dependents. This includes spouse/same-sex domestic partner (residing with the Insured student) and unmarried children under the age of 26. Dependent eligibility is effective and expires concurrently with that of the insured student. If the deadline has passed your dependents may not enroll until the next coverage period, unless there has been a significant life change (i.e., marriage, birth, loss of prior coverage). If the enrollment form is submitted within 30 days of the qualifying event, coverage will be backdated and begin on the date of the qualifying event. Please contact the Student Health Insurance Coordinator for more information.

Postdoctoral Fellows

Postdoctoral Fellows may also insure their dependents. Dependent eligibility is effective and expires concurrently with that of the insured Postdoctoral Fellow. You have 30 days from the date of your appointment to enroll dependents. If the 30 days has passed your dependents may not enroll until the next coverage period, unless there has been a significant life change (i.e., marriage, birth, loss of prior coverage). If the enrollment form is submitted within 30 days of the qualifying event, coverage will be backdated and begin on the date of the qualifying event. Please contact the Student Health Insurance Coordinator for more information.

Dependent enrollment applications must be received by Aetna no later than the Enrollment Deadline dates below.
