Student Health Service’s mental health clinician:  Up to 10 visits without charge

Aetna mental health clinician:
  • $25/visit co-pay; 40 visits per year

  • There is no further coverage after 40 visits per year.
Non-Aetna mental health clinician:

If you choose a clinician not in the Aetna network, you will be responsible for a $500 deductible for non-biologically based conditions.* After the deductible, Aetna will reimburse you 70% of usual, customary and reasonable charges (UCR), usually less than what New York City therapists charge. You are entitled to 40 visits.

*Biologically based conditions include such illnesses as schizophrenia, major depression, and Bipolar I. There is no deductible for out-of-network clinicians for these diagnoses, but the 70% coverage of UCR does apply.
