FAQ - Coming Soon:

Refunds for Students Enrolled in
2011-2012 Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan

Virginia Tech students enrolled in the university sponsored health insurance plan administered by Aetna Student Health during the 2011-2012 policy year will be receiving partial refunds.  The refunds are a result of updated data from the prior insurance carrier of the student health plan, which became available after insurance premiums had been set for the Aetna plan.

All refunds will be posted to the student account.  Refunds, net of any balance due the university, will be sent direct deposit to the account on file or checks from the university mailed to the student permanent address on record with the university.

Refund amounts are based upon a percentage of the actual amount that each student paid for their personal and/or family insurance plan.  This is the first of two refunds that will be processed for the students on the 2011-2012 Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan.

We are pleased that Aetna Student Health has joined with the University to ensure that our current Student Health Insurance Plan cost accurately reflects the program.
