Health Insurance

From ways to help save for future medical expenses to a full range of medical and life insurance options, Virginia Tech offers employees an abundance of health benefits.

Health Insurance

Virginia Tech offers eligible employees a variety of health insurance plans to choose from to meet their unique needs, and also provides employees with basic life insurance coverage. In addition, a variety of optional and supplemental benefits are available to employees.

Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

As part of Virginia Tech’s health care benefit plan, employees and family members who are covered by the university’s health insurance have access to Anthem and Aetna EAP providers. The first four visits are free. A copayment based on your health care plan will be charged for additional appointments.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Eligible Virginia Tech employees have the opportunity to take advantage of the savings that come from Flexible Spending Accounts, which allow employees to set aside money each pay period on a pre-tax basis to pay for qualified health care and dependent care expenses.
