Beginning fall 2014, West Virginia University requires health care coverage for all domestic students enrolled on the main campus in 6 or more credit hours and international students enrolled in 1 or more credit hours. The new insurance plan was specially designed to serve students within a 20 mile radius of campus utilizing the WVU Healthcare system, but works across the country through Aetna’s national network of providers. Students enrolled in campus programs are assessed $724 per semester (spring and fall) for health insurance. Students may submit a waiver application to opt-out of the WVU plan if they already have health care coverage.
During the initial phase, WVU Online & Extended Campus students enrolled in only online or off campus course work were exempted from the coverage due to distance from campus.
We care about the voice of our Online & Extended Campus population and wish to provide the best service to you. We have had some feedback indicating that some of our students may be interested in the WVU-sponsored Aetna health insurance plan. Please let us know if you are interested in the option of expanding the eligibility for the Aetna health plan to include Online & Extended Campus students in the future by completing this survey. Your comments are important to tailoring this policy for WVU Online & Extended Campus students.
