The Student Health Insurance Plan will continue to be provided by Aetna Student Health. The plan is ACA compliant and includes access to Aetna's national PPO network of providers. Students do not have to select a primary care physician and referrals are not required. In order to keep the premium competitive, the following benefit changes were made: Deductible increased from $150 to $250 and the Prescription Drug Benefit changed from $20/$40/$60 to $15/$45/$75/$100 lowering the copay for generic drugs and increasing the copay for brand and specialty drugs.
NJCU has partnered with University Health Plans to administer the plan and help with waiver, enrollment, or benefit-related questions. University Health Plans can be reached at 800-437-6448 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Annual Student Health Insurance fee will be billed to all full-time students during the Fall billing cycle. Students who waive their insurance in the Fall may not enroll in the Spring semester unless there is a Qualifying Life Event as defined by the plan. You may enroll in health insurance within the first 31 days of the life event outside the Open Enrollment Period. To enroll due to a qualifying life event, contact University Health Plans at 800-437-6448.
The Spring/Summer Student Health Insurance fee will be automatically billed to all NEW incoming full-time students for the Spring 2022 semester, and can be waived if that student has insurance coverage.
Health Insurance Enrollment/Waiver Information
Students are required to enroll in/waive the College-Sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan every academic year. If you plan to keep the Student Health Insurance, you may confirm enrollment prior to the College specified enrollment period. The enrollment website is located in the left-hand side navigation menu.
The College reserves the right to audit all waivers in order to ensure compliance with the College insurance requirements. Please be sure to have a copy of your insurance policy as you may be asked to provide documentation. Pending insurance coverage or a letter from your employer or third company is NOT acceptable.
Students who waive their insurance in the fall may not enroll in the spring semester. Students who waive are eligible to enroll if there is a Qualifying Life Event which causes them to lose other insurance. Please contact University Health Plans to enroll (within 31 days of the event).
The Student Health Insurance Plan is not available to part-time students at this time.
