Syracuse University, including the Slutzker Center, will be closed on Monday, May 25 for the Memorial Day Holiday. For the remainder of that week, Tuesday, May 26 to Friday, May 29, there will be no seminars (Practical Training, On-Campus Employment, or Travel) and no practical training processing. Many members of our staff will be away at a conference, so there will be limited services that week. Please note these limited functions when making plans.
Dear International Students,
Welcome to all new and returning Syracuse University students. Please read through this letter, as it explains an entirely new system related to health insurance which will affect you as of August 1, 2015.
Syracuse University has contracted with AETNA to ensure you are covered by a health insurance policy compliant with the requirements of the U.S.A. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). This new policy will be in effect as of August 1, 2015. The University does require all full-time, matriculated international students to have a United States based health insurance plan.
The 2015-16 academic year insurance cost will be $1,890 for an eligible student. This charge will appear on your student billing statement from Syracuse University as of August 1, 2015. There are options to purchase coverage for dependents (spouse and children) at a higher cost.
There is a process by which a student may apply for a waiver of this charge. Eligibility for a waiver REQUIRES that your alternative policy be U.S. based and that it meets the minimum standards of the ACA. No policies written in other countries will meet this criteria. Please note that this is an entirely new system at Syracuse University, and foreign policies which may have been accepted in the past will no longer be accepted. Please DO NOT purchase policies at home for any time period which extends past August 1, 2015 because it is likely that you will still have to pay for the AETNA policy on your student bill. I can also assure you that this AETNA policy is a much more comprehensive policy, and it is in your best interest to have this excellent coverage for yourself (and your dependents) while living in the United States. You may choose to keep your home plan along with the required University plan.
There is more information about the AETNA SU Student Health Insurance policy on the Health Services website, including a Frequently Asked Questions page.
Part-time students, and other non-matriculated students may still need help finding an appropriate health insurance policy for their time period in the U.S. Both Palma Cassano and advisers at the Slutzker Center can help these students find suitable policies if needed.
These changes reflect Syracuse University’s ongoing commitment to assuring the well-being of each and every one of our students during their time here at Syracuse. If you have any immediate questions, or would like to speak in confidence about a specific health concern, please feel free to contact Palma Cassano at Syracuse University Health Services.
Stay healthy, and be prepared for all medical necessities! This is a great opportunity for you to care for yourself without the added burden of selecting a health insurance policy for 2015-2016. Have a good summer, and we look forward to seeing you in the fall!
