Fees for Student Families

with a Spouse, Domestic Partner, and/or Child(ren)

Students who enroll in the University-sponsored Aetna Student Health insurance can enroll their spouse/domestic partner*, and/or child(ren) in the insurance plan. Married students without children will find this option less expensive than enrolling in a family insurance plan. With this option, the student and spouse/domestic partner each pay the mandatory health fee and the health insurance fee. The spouse receives the same coverage through the mandatory health fee and the health insurance as the student.

Students enroll by completing the online Health Insurance Enrollment/Waiver Process. After completing the enrollment process, the student will have the option to enroll a spouse/domestic partner and/or dependent children. The cost for children is the same whether it is for one child or more. The link to the online insurance process is in the pink "Quick Links" box on the UHS home page.

* A domestic partner is a person living with the student as a domestic partner with whom the student cannot legally marry, e.g., partner of the same sex. Check Insurance for Domestic Partners on this web site for eligibility guidelines for domestic partners.
** The option to pay the mandatory health fee and receive services at UHS and UCC is not available for children under age 16.
