Aetna Student Health Insurance

All students are required to carry their own medical insurance while attending Pacific Union College. Your plan must cover emergent and non-emergent off-campus medical and mental health care in the Napa Valley. If you do not currently carry insurance or your plan is not adequate, the college has arranged with the Aetna insurance company to offer students the Aetna Student Health plan at a very affordable cost. As a convenience to you, PUC has agreed to assist students with the cost of this plan by allowing reimbursement through your student account in three equal installments billed once a quarter.

“Whether or not you have existing health insurance you are required to go to www.aetnastudenthealth.com/puc to complete the waiver process or enroll in the Aetna Student Health plan. To successfully complete this requirement, you must be enrolled with us, taking six or more units, and are accessing their website during the correct timeframe (30 days prior to 2 weeks after instruction begins)*.

For more details please go to www.puc.edu/healthservices (707) 965-6339 or call Aetna customer service at (877) 480-4161 8:30am-5:30pm EST. To view the Aetna Student Health plan details please go to https://aetnastudenthealth.com. It is no longer necessary to submit a copy of your existing insurance in lieu of the above requirement.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL STUDENTS (REGARDLESS OF WHAT QUARTER YOU BEGAN ATTENDING) ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THE ABOVE PROCESS EVERY FALL QUARTER.

International Students

The Aetna Student Health plan is automatically purchased for you. You do not need to complete the above requirement. To view your health plan and/or print your medical ID card, please go to https://aetnastudenthealth.com/puc.

Pioneers Athletes

If you plan to carry your own existing insurance, please contact your carrier to verify coverage for intercollegiate sport-related injuries. In cases where there is no coverage for sport-related injuries you can either find an adequate plan or enroll in the Aetna Student Health plan. In either case, you are also required to complete the above process.

 

*Failure to complete this requirement will automatically create an Aetna subscriber account for the student. This is a non-cancellation policy with Aetna and cannot be reversed for any reason unless the student no longer attends PUC or the plan ends (August 31 of every year). The charge for this policy will be added to the student’s college account and will become the financial responsibility of the individual.
