Consider the Following When Deciding on Insurance!
Does your current plan provide for medically-necessary care anywhere in the U.S. in addition to the TCU Health Center?
As a major medical, comprehensive plan, the Aetna Student Health Insurance provides benefits for illnesses, injuries, and routine health care both on and off campus throughout the U.S. In fact, worldwide benefits are provided for students studying abroad or traveling outside of the U.S.
When treated at the AAAHC accredited TCU Health Center, services such as x-rays, lab tests, dressings, GYN exams & Pap Smears, EKGs, orthopedic supplies, and immunizations are covered at 100% for students carrying the Aetna Student Health Insurance.
The TCU Health Center will file a claim with the Aetna Student Health Insurance for non-prescription services. The Health Center will NOT file a claim with any private health insurance company.
Does your current plan include prescription coverage?
Covered prescriptions written by a Health Center provider and filled at the TCU Health Center Pharmacy may be eligible for an 80% reimbursement by submitting a claim and receipt to Aetna Student Health. Covered prescriptions filled elsewhere may be eligible for a 70% reimbursement. In either case, the $350 deductible must be met. Contraceptive Drugs are reimbursed at 100%.
What is your current deductible?
The in-network deductible on the TCU Plan is $350 per Plan Year with an 80/20 benefit; out-of-network is $600 per Plan Year with a 70/30 benefit.
Does your current plan cover medical treatment while traveling away from home or studying abroad?
The TCU Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan includes Travel Assistance Services as well as, if needed, Emergency Medical, Political, and Natural Disaster Evacuation.
