Eligibility

Participation in the Student Health Insurance Plan is mandatory for Indiana University Student Academic Appointees and Fellowship Recipients unless proof of comparable coverage is presented, and a waiver is filed by the waiver deadline. Student Academic Appointees and Fellowship Recipients are automatically enrolled in both the medical and dental plans each semester and the cost of the student premiums are paid by the university.

All Student Academic Appointees (SAAs) appointed with 37.5% FTE or above for the corresponding semester, Fall and/or Spring and all Fellowship recipients with an award of $3,401 or more per semester are automatically enrolled in this Insurance Plan which is fully subsidized by the university or external funding agency. All graduate students on an academic appointment at or above 37.5% FTE must enroll in six credit hours or G901 each semester on appointment (summer excluded). Fellowship recipients must be enrolled in a minimum of six credit hours per semester.

Home study, correspondence, and television courses do not fulfill the eligibility requirements. If and whenever 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. Eligible dependents are the 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 for coverage 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 to 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 dependents will have to wait until the next annual open enrollment period to enroll. Please contact the Student Health Coordinator for more information, 812-856-4650.

Enrollment applications must be received by Aetna Student Health no later than the Enrollment Deadline dates below.
