Trinity requires all students to covered by health insurance
. You may utilize your existing plan, purchase the Aetna Student Health Plan, or combine the benefits of both. If you have an existing plan, you will want to be sure that it covers any care you may need while away from home and in Hartford. The choice is up to you, but you must notify us of your decision by taking action via the online link between June and August 15
and again each summer.
- Go to University Health Plans, Inc. website after June 11.
- Click the Undergraduate Waiver & Enrollment Forms button in the left margin
- Make your selection:
Send your student to campus with their own wallet card in case they need to be referred off campus for care (laboratory or specialist care).
- Waive- Choose this option if you have existing health insurance and do not want to supplement it with the Trinity Aetna Student Health Plan, this will reverse/refund the insurance charge on the tuition bill.
- Enroll- Choose this option if you don't have existing health insurance or if you want to supplement your existing plan with the coverage provided by the Student Accident and Sickness Plan. This is very helpful for those who have high deductible plans or out of state HMOs.
Insurance written by companies outside of the United States and those policies which are provided to Medicaid patients outside of Connecticut are not suitable coverage and cannot be used to waive out of AETNA Student Health Insurance Plan.
Health Insurance Grant
Grants are awarded to some students who receive financial aide. To apply for consideration of a financial assitant grant to help cover the cost of the insurance, enroll in the plan using the link above, then submit this application
to the health center. Submissions will ONLY BE ACCEPTED UNTIL AUGUST 15.
