Bridge Plan-discount Program (Downtown Phoenix, Tempe, Polytechnic, West)

ASU Health Services is pleased to offer a Bridge service discount program designed to save the student money if they need certain health services at the University. ASU health service's mission is to provide quality health care at low cost to the students at ASU. Even though you have health insurance, it may not cover everyday health expenses like lab tests, x-rays or consultations with an on-campus specialist. Many of the insurance plans require a higher deductible when the student is "out of network".

ASU Health Services now offers a discount program to pay for some of these services. THIS IS NOT AN INSURANCE POLICY. It is a way to reduce your total health care costs for certain services rendered at one of the following locations: Tempe, Downtown Phoenix, Polytechnic and West. Like the Aetna Student Insurance plan, you will automatically be re-enrolled for future semesters.
