All students enrolled in full-time programs (MBA, MS, BS, and MICA MA/MBA), and all F-1 visa status students are required to maintain adequate health insurance coverage to provide protection against unexpected accidents and illnesses. These students are automatically enrolled in Aetna Student Health, the University’s student health insurance plan, and are billed for the Aetna Student Health premium on their ISIS Student Account each fall semester. The premium rate for 2013-2014 is $1,895. For students beginning in spring 2014, the rate is $1,076. Coverage begins at orientation and ends on August 14, 2014. NO REFUNDS are issued once enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan, except in the case of an insured person entering the armed forces of any country.
Other Carey students are eligible to enroll in the Aetna Student Plan, but are not automatically enrolled. Interested Carey students can enroll online at www.aetnastudenthealth.com. Students make premium payments directly to Aetna Student Health. Navigate to “Medical Plan: Enroll/Waive,” and look for part-time student enrollment.
Students must work directly with Aetna Student Health and be billed separately for spouse and/or dependent insurance. At the Aetna site, lnavigate to “Medical Plan: Enroll/Waive,” and look for “Enroll: Dependents.”
If you are a currently enrolled full-time student whose existing health insurance coverage will end, and you would like to apply for Aetna’s insurance before the published enrollment date, scan your insurance carrier’s letter stating your coverage termination date and send it to Student Services at email@example.com. Please include your phone number and email address. Student Services will contact Aetna to receive your pro-rated cost and will send you a paper application to complete and send to Aetna. This rate will cover your insurance from your termination date to the next published Aetna enrollment date.
Beginning July 15, 2013, details about the Aetna Student Health Plan benefits, coverage rates and costs will be available online at www.aetnastudenthealth.com. For questions about benefits, enrollment, and applications please call (800) 558-8845 or go to www.aetnastudenthealth.com.
Insurance Waiver Process
Only those students who have sponsor-paid or pre-existing health insurance coverage comparable to the University’s plan may waive Aetna Student Health plan coverage. These students must complete the online waiver process at www.aetnastudenthealth.com. International students whose waiver is denied online, and other students who experience problems with their waiver, can submit a copy of their insurance cards and the plan’s schedule of benefits to Student Services at firstname.lastname@example.org for a review of comparability. Under “Find Your School” look for JHU Carey Business School. Navigate to “Medical Plans: Enroll/Waive”. The waiver site will open July 15 and close September 27 for students beginning in the fall. For students beginning in the spring, the deadline to waive coverage is February 28. Students will not be permitted to waive coverage after these deadlines. Waivers are possible during the first semester of enrollment only and must be renewed each subsequent fall semester at specifically designated time periods.
