WVU is pleased to announce that we have selected Aetna Student Health as our student health insurance plan carrier beginning with the 2013-2014 academic year.

Although medical insurance coverage is not mandatory for all students, it is highly recommended. WELLWVU Student Health is designed as your source of primary health care during your student years. However, there may be a time when more extensive medical treatment or emergency care is needed which is beyond our scope.

West Virginia University has negotiated with the Aetna Student Health to offer a comprehensive affordable health insurance plan for our students. We encourage students to consider the Aetna Student Health Plan if they do not have coverage as a means to protect themselves against unexpected, unforeseen medical expenses.

International Students

It is the policy of West Virginia University that all international students must carry medical health insurance while a student at WVU. The international student has the option to participate in the Aetna Student Health Plan or provide evidence of private health insurance coverage that is comparable to Aetna Student Health Insurance plan. Find more information for international students here.
