Health Insurance Requirement
All undergraduates, regardless of site of study, MUST have health insurance and provide proof of coverage EVERY year. This proof is given by either enrolling in the Aetna Student Health (ASH) Plan offered or, by waiving-out of the plan online by providing privately held insurance information. The only way to remove the insurance charge from your tuition bill is by waiving-out online. Click here to WAIVE OUT or to ENROLL. If waiving out of coverage, students should bring a wallet card of current coverage with them to campus.
2012-2013 ASH Plan Costs
Undergraduate Students: Full Year - $1,400 , Spring only - $875
Graduate and IDP Students (Voluntary): Full Year - $2,000 , Spring only - $1,250
Briefly, the plan's policy year is 8/15/12 to 8/14/2013, annual cost is $ 1,400. Students who enroll in the ASH Plan should use the health center on campus as their primary care point while the college is in session. When the health center is closed, the insurance network (http://www.aetna.com/docfind/home) can be used to access care elsewhere.
Health Insurance Grant
Grants are awarded to some students on financial aide. To apply for consideration of grant monies to help cover the cost of the insurance, enroll in the plan using the link above, then submit this application

2013 - 2012 International student coverage
If an International student is insured by an international program and believes that the policy provides equivalent coverage (i.e. a US claims address) to an American policy, the student or parent should contact that company and obtain "USA COVERAGE VERIFICATION" in writing to submit to Trinity. Most international insurance policies DO NOT cover claims in the USA and are not accepted.

All athletes on a varsity Trinity sport who are injured during a game or in-season practice should always report injuries to the College Athletic Training Room Staff.
Trinity has an "Excess Coverage Policy" for athletic injuries which means costs for care from sports injuries should first be sent through primary/home insurance coverage for all eligible payment and then, outstanding bills should be submitted to Training room staff for payment through our Excess Policy. Our policy will cover medical expenses up to $90,000.
