On this page: Eligibility | Dependents | Enrollment & Premiums | Summary of Benefits | Continuation | Questions

The plan is administered by Aetna Student Health. All information on rates, plan benefits, claim procedures and exclusions are stated in the International Student Health Insurance Plan Summary (PDF). The policy number for IU is 812849.

Eligibility

Participation in the medical plan is mandatory for Indiana University International Students, Intensive English Program Students (IEP & PIE) and Visiting Scholars, unless proof of comparable coverage is presented, and a waiver is filed by the waiver deadline. In the absence of a waiver, students will automatically be enrolled in the medical plan each semester and the cost of the premium will be billed through to the Bursar account. For more information regarding the waiver process please contact your local international student office on campus. Visiting Scholars should contact their department or campus international student office for information regarding enrollment and payment information.

Students must be enrolled at Indiana University for at least the first 31 days after the date for which coverage is purchased. Home study, correspondence, and television courses do not fulfill the eligibility requirements. If Aetna Student Health discovers the eligibility requirements have not been met, its only obligation is refund of premium; less any claims paid.

Dependents

Eligible students may also insure their dependents. This includes spouse 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. If the enrollment form is submitted after the 30 days of the qualifying event, it will not be accepted, and the student and his/her dependents will have to wait until the next coverage period to enroll. Please contact the Student Health Insurance Coordinator for more information.

Enrollment applications can be done online or by paper submission, but the application and payment must be received by Aetna Student Health no later than the Enrollment Deadline dates below. All premiums must be paid at the time of enrollment; Aetna does not accept monthly payments and cannot charge premiums to Bursar accounts.
