  • Day-to-day support like the 24/7 health line, open enrollment assistance and an on-campus presence
  • Digital plan tools like their Aetna® member website, Aetna® Health app, digital ID card and international student resources

  • Help on the go, like emergency travel arrangements, language translation or help finding lost luggage or travel documents

An easy, seamless experience

An easy, seamless experience

From customer support to simple billing and claims administration, you’ve got support you can count on.


Our customer service teams educate your students on helpful tools and programs, and how to make the most of their benefits. And they’re always finding ways to improve, based on survey feedback. 


Our claims and administration teams deliver timely determinations of benefits and adherence to legislative policies. And they’re true specialists, with an average tenure of 15 years.


With our simplified claims process, we offer step-by-step support for an easy billing experience. We’ll simplify enrollment too, with easier file submission, faster report processing and quicker access to ID cards, coverage and student services. 

Health is the real win

Health is the real win

We understand your students and their health care. Hitting 10K steps doesn’t motivate everyone to get healthier. The Attain by Aetna® app empowers and rewards students for getting healthier – in ways that work for them. Its a first-of-its-kind health experience that combines a student’s health history with their Apple Watch® activity to offer personalized goals,* achievable actions and big rewards** — like an Apple Watch or gift cards from popular retailers.


The Attain app is available across select school campuses with students. Check with your Aetna representative for eligibility and more information.

Support for students in need

Support for students in need

Though our Guardian Angel Program, we can use claims data to identify those who’ve recently survived an overdose. Then reach out with the right support.


A caring nurse or clinician will:


  • Assess mental and physical wellbeing
  • Give information on naloxone and other strategies to reduce harm
  • Direct students to in-network resources and providers
  • Work with case management to offer ongoing support and follow up, as needed
