Student Health Insurance
It is highly recommended that all AAP students maintain adequate health insurance coverage to provide protection against unexpected accidents and illnesses. The University Student Health Insurance Plan is administered by Aetna Student Health and underwritten by Aetna Life Insurance Company. You must be at a full-time student status, taking a minimum of three courses a semester, in order to be eligible to purchase the University Student Health Insurance Plan. The university health insurance plan has enrollment periods over the summer (for fall enrollment) as well as during January (for spring enrollment).
International Students who are enrolled in 3 courses or more to satisfy their visa requirements are considered full-time status and are required to enroll in the University Student Health Insurance plan or a comparable plan. Medical care in the United States is very expensive. In the event of an unexpected accident requiring professional care, the JHU Student Health Insurance plan will make the experience less stressful.
Enrolling in the Student Health Insurance Plan
Go to Aetna Student Health click on “Find Your School,” enter Johns Hopkins University, select “Arts & Science and Engineering”, and then follow the instructions to enroll. You can also download and complete an Enrollment Form and return it to the Office of the Registrar, 75 Garland Hall, 3400 N. Charles St., Baltimore, MD 21218-2688. A permanent insurance ID card will be mailed to you shortly after your application is processed. For questions about this plan, please contact Aetna Student Health at 800-558-800-558-or Martha Gamble, the University Student Insurance Coordinator at 410-516-8079. Once a member of the Student Health Plan, students can search on the Aetna Student Health site for a doctor nearby where they live.
