If you are a student in the mandatory population once you register for classes, the student health insurance charge will be placed on your student account each semester/term.
It may take up to 15 business days from then for Aetna's records to register you as an active member. If you need medical services during the processing period, you may submit a claim to be reimbursed by Aetna.
Contact Aetna for further questions about reimbursement by phone: (855) 821-9720

Plan documents and summaries of benefits are available on the Aetna Student Health website. Refer to Plan Costs by Program for a detailed breakdown of costs per semester/term.
Needlestick coverage includes treatment for exposure to or contact of mucous membrane or nontintact skin (e.g., exposed skin that is chapped, abraded, or afflicted with dermatitis) with blood, tissue, or other body fluids that are potentially infectious with Hepatitis B Virus, Hepatitis C Virus, or HIV through needlestick, instruments, or cut with a sharp object. For further information visit the Student Medical Center's Needlestick page.
Once your waiver application has been approved, please allow up to 10 business days for the charge to be reversed.
If you are entitled to a refund of tuition and fees, the refund will first be applied to any sources of financial aid from which you may have been awarded. Once all balances owed to NSU have been satisfied, any excess funds remaining will be refunded to you. Refunds will generally be delivered to students in the form of a check unless the student has a valid Direct Deposit Authorization on file or payment has been made by credit card or gift card, in which case the excess credit will be returned to the card. Please visit the Bursar's website for more information on refunds of charges, tuition, and fees.
As per Aetna Student Health Insurance policies:
Students must contact the Student Health Insurance Department in a timely manner to request the student health insurance charge to be reversed.
