Accessing care in New York City
To get the most out of your plan, use Aetna's DocFind tool to search for participating providers. Enter the zip code of the area where services will be received,
and select "Student Health Plans" as the health plan type. Participating
providers are listed as "in network" in the search results.
Tip: We recommend confirming with the provider that they accept Aetna insurance, in case there has been a change that has not yet been reflected in DocFind.
When using a participating provider, there typically is a $25 copay for medical visits and a $10 copay for mental
health visits. (SHP also provides coverage for non-participating providers, usually with a 30% co-insurance.)
Use the links in the left-hand menu bar to learn more about how you can use your SHP benefits.
If you have any questions about how to access services, what SHP covers or does not cover, what you must do to get maximum coverage, or any other aspect of this plan, please contact Aetna Student Health or Cornell's Office of Student Health Benefits. We are here to help.
