Massachusetts Law C.15A.s.18 requires every undergraduate student registered for 9 or more credits and every graduate student who is registered for 7 or more credits to purchase health insurance.
All students are charged for the university health insurance plan.
If you choose not to purchase the university plan, you must complete an online waiver form annually. The form can be accessed by clicking "Waive Health Insurance online" on the student accounts website. This process must be completed to avoid being charged the insurance cost on your tuition bill.
If you need more information about purchasing or waiving the Student Health Insurance you can call the Student Accounts office at 978.665.4126. For questions regarding insurance coverage, contact University Health Plans at 1.800.437.6448.
