The Aetna premium ($2,092) seems pretty cheap to me, although I don't know how the details of the plan (deductibles, copayments, etc.) compare to other ones. They apparently haven't posted that info on their website yet.
I have Anthem with a dental rider for $105 a month = $1260 per year. My deductible is $5000, but the coinsurance after deductible is 0% unlike the Aetna plan. In-system doctor visits are free (excluding the copay), and the total coverage limit is 5 million dollars (I think Aetna's is only 1 or 2 million).
Keep in mind that you will still get FREE access to the student health center even without the Aetna plan.
