While the majority of costs at Schiffert Health Center are covered by the yearly student health fee paid as part of tuition, charges for certain services at the health center and health care expenses outside of Schiffert Health Center are not covered. We strongly recommend that you purchase a health insurance policy from a reputable insurance company to cover these expenses.
The Virginia Tech Office of Risk Management administers a health insurance policy for students, although it is by no means required. Virginia Tech has selected AETNA Student Health as the university sponsored student health program. For more information you can read the Virginia Tech Student Health Insurance Pamphlet or call 540-231-6226.
