The Health Center bills private health insurance, and we are currently participating with many commercial insurance plans and Medicaid managed care plans. If you wish to use your health insurance, please be sure to bring your insurance card each time you visit the Health Center. Towson University also has an excellent student health insurance plan available through Aetna Student Health.  This reasonably priced plan covers most Health Center services, prescription medications, as well as specialty referrals. For more information about this plan visit and pick Towson University from the drop down menu. 

Mandatory Health Insurance Policy For International Students

All international students on F, J or any other non-employment-related visa status are required to have health insurance that meets TU’s minimum standards. These students are automatically enrolled in the student health insurance plan through Aetna Student Health. The insurance charge will be reflected on your account through the Bursar's Office. Although this insurance is mandatory, students with their own health insurance who want an exemption (waiver) from the school plan must submit an online waiver application as soon as they arrive at Towson, which verifies that their insurance coverage meets TU’s minimum standards. Applications for a waiver must be completed online by the waiver deadline of the student’s first term at TU and each fall term thereafter. Waiver deadlines are September 15 for fall term, February 15 for spring term and June 15 for summer term. For assistance with insurance enrollment or the waiver process, contact our Insurance Coordinator at 410-704-2466.
