Sickness Insurance
I don't need sickness insurance. How do I get it taken off of my bill?
  • You must waive the insurance at the beginning of each academic year no later than September 15th (February 15th for students starting in the Spring Semester).
  • To waive: Go to Eastern's homepage and click on Current Students. Select the eWeb Online option, log in with your ID number and PIN. Select Student Services and then Student Accounts. Click on the Student Insurance Waiver option. Enter the requested information and click the Submit button.
  • The waiver will post to your account in 24 hours. We recommend that you review your account to verify that the waiver has posted. If there is a problem and the waiver has not been credited, you will be responsible for the sickness insurance charge.
If I change to part-time status will I still get the sickness insurance?
  • If you change from full-time to part-time status, you will lose your insurance coverage.
  • If you would like to continue the coverage you must contact our insurance provider (Aetna Student Health) directly.
  • They can be reached at 877-375-4244 or www.aetnastudenthealth.com.
I will graduate at the end of the Fall semester, will my sickness insurance be valid in the Spring?
  • No, it will not.
  • You purchase sickness insurance one semester at a time. If you graduate in the Fall, your insurance coverage expires on the day before the start of the Spring semester.
  • Consult your insurance policy information for specific coverage dates.
