Claims Submissions

Aetna-participating providers

As a Student Health Plan (SHP) member, when you receive care at Cornell Health or at another Aetna-participating provider, any claims that need to be submitted for reimbursement will be submitted directly to Aetna for you.

When a claim is submitted on your behalf, you will receive and Explanation of Benefits (EOB) in the mail after your visit that explains what your provider charged and what was covered under SHP. If you have any questions about your EOB, please contact the office of Student Health Benefits.

Other providers

If you receive care from a provider that does not participate with Aetna insurance, and you want to submit a claim for reimbursement, you will be responsible for submitting your own claim.

You may download a claim form here: https://www.aetnastudenthealth.com/schools/aetnaClaim.pdf.
