This health fee provides 100% coverage for all medical services provided by the STU Health Center, and access to board-certified doctors (within the United States) that can resolve many of your medical issues, 24 hours a day/7 days a week, via phone or online video consults from wherever you happen to be. It’s health care on your terms – simple as that.
2014-15 Student Insurance Plan Information
St. Thomas University is pleased to offer our students and their families an affordable student health insurance plan, underwritten by Aetna Student Health effective August 1, 2014. The Student Insurance Plan qualifies as minimum essential coverage under the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate and is intended for students who do not currently have other health insurance; do not have in-network health benefits while covered under an out-of-state HMO, State Exchange Plan or non-transferable state Medicaid; for students that may find this coverage to be less expensive compared to other low deductible plans; or who lost health insurance due to a qualifying event.
