The Spring 2019 Portal is currently open and accepting requests to waive student health insurance.
For all MA location students health insurance coverage is a requirement. You will be billed in advance for health insurance if you are a Graduate student taking 6 or more credits, an Undergraduate student taking 9 or more credits, or an International Student marked for SEVIS regardless of enrolled credits.
You cannot terminate coverage if you have been denied a waiver and charged for the annual plan (coverage period September 2018, to August 2019) or spring plan (coverage period January 2019, to August 2019). This waiver period is for NEW or returning students ONLY.
If you have a qualified insurance plan that meets the State’s minimum requirements, you are afforded the opportunity to waive out of the Student Health plan. To request to waive the Student Health Insurance Plan for the Fall 2018 policy (coverage period September 1 , 2018 to August 31, 2019) you must submit your request online. Paper requests or copies of health cards are not accepted by any College personnel and submission of the waiver request to any party other than Gallagher Koster is not accepted and will not be honored.
