How to Use Your Student Insurance
When using your insurance it is important to remember some key tips.
- Make sure to print out your insurance card and carry with you at all times. After you enroll into the plan, you can access your ID card by clicking the Print Your ID Card tile on the webpage, or the Student Login tile at the top of the page.
- You can visit any medical provider or doctor you wish, but it is recommended that you use a medical provider that is in the “network” that your plan uses to reduce your out-of-pocket costs for medical care. The network your plan uses is called Aetna, and you can search for participating doctors, urgent care centers, hospitals, and more by visiting LewerMark’s website and clicking “Search for a Doctor”
- At most locations, it will be very easy to use your insurance. Some doctors or clinics may not accept your insurance because they are not affiliated with the insurance program. If you are ever unsure of your coverage, you can ask them to call the telephone number on your card to speak with a LewerMark representative and verify your coverage. Or, you can call LewerMark and ask their team to assist you.
