Aetna Covers Travel Vaccines

Modified: June 23, 2014

Aetna Student Health recently made a business decision to cover travel vaccines the same as other routine vaccines. This decision was made to be in line with the larger Aetna enterprise, which does not distinguish between routine and travel immunizations.Referrals are not required as the vaccines are now considered routine. However, insured students should use providers that are in the Aetna Student Health Network. If the insured person chooses to have this service outside of the Aetna Student Health network, then the Annual $250.00 deductible will apply. The plan will pay 80% and the insured will be responsible for 20%.

This news most benefits graduate and professional students, as they receive an AETNA plan as part of their student benefits package.
