Student Medical Insurance
I. Policy

Medical (health) insurance is required for all full-time students (domestic and international), all student residents and all part-time international students, unless a written waiver is obtained. Written evidence of alternate coverage must be provided to receive a waiver.

A student health insurance plan, provided by The Chickering Group, an Aetna company,

is available to CUA students. The plan is a student-focused, affordable health insurance policy that protects students at school, at home and while traveling or studying abroad. The student health insurance plan provides coverage from Aug. 14, 2005, at 12:01 a.m. to Aug. 14, 2006, at 12:01 a.m.

A domestic student is covered for the full policy period whether or not he or she remains a student at CUA. International student coverage terminates when the student returns to the student's home country. Part-time domestic students may purchase the student medical plan upon request. Any student enrolled in the insurance plan may enroll his or her spouse and/or dependents by direct application to the insurance company.

The student medical plan charge is not refundable or transferable. A student incorrectly billed for the student medical plan must provide notification before the end of late registration of the semester in which the incorrect billing occurred.
