Aetna Student Health

While there is no additional charge to students for counseling services provided through the Student Wellness Center, there may be a charge if you seek counseling through a community provider. 
Health insurance coverage (accident and sickness) is mandatory for all full-time students. CCSU offers a student health insurance policy through the Aetna Student Health Agency Inc.  All full-time students are automatically enrolled in the accident policy. The mandatory accident insurance plan cannot be waived.  Because it is a secondary policy, a claim should first be submitted to the student's primary insurance carrier.
Aetna's claim form is available online at and will need to be completed and submitted to Aetna along with a copy of the Explanation of Benefits (EOB) from the primary insurance and a copy of the itemized bill or original claim.
Students can also go online as follows:

  1. Go to
  2. Select Central Connecticut State University from the dropdown list of schools
  3. Select "View your Insurance Plan Details"
  4. Select "How to use your plan"
  5. Select "Print an Aetna Claim Form"

Aetna customer service is available at 1-877-375-4244 for further information or assistance with submitting the claim.
