Gordon College

2024-2025 Academic Year

Dear Students and Parents,

Massachusetts Law requires that all students enrolled in at least 3/4 course load (or more) must either provide proof of enrollment in a medical insurance plan that meets the Commonwealth mandated guidelines or be enrolled in a university-sponsored plan. Therefore, if you are a full-time or three-quarter time matriculating undergraduate or graduate student for the 2024-2025 Academic Year at Gordon College, you are required to have sufficient health insurance coverage while in attendance at Gordon College.

United Healthcare Student Resources (UHCSR) will continue to be the insurance company providing coverage for the Gordon College Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) 2024-2025. The plan is ACA compliant and includes access to Harvard Pilgrim/United Healthcare's national network of PPO providers. Students do not have to select a primary care physician and referrals are not required. Gordon College has partnered with University Health Plans (UHP) to administer the plan’s waiver, enrollment, or general benefit-related questions.

Waiver Process

Students covered by a comprehensive health insurance plan in the area surrounding the Wenham/Greater Boston, can opt-out of the SHIP by completing the waiver form. Before waiving, compare the cost, coverage, and benefits of the SHIP to your existing plan. If you do not submit a waiver form by the deadline above, you will be enrolled in the SHIP and responsible for the cost of the insurance plan. 

Enrollment Process

If you are enrolling in the school-sponsored SHIP, you should complete the online Enrollment Form to confirm your acceptance of the plan and expedite the processing of your insurance card. If you do not submit a form by the deadline you will be enrolled in the SHIP retroactive to the effective date of August 1, 2024. 


Qualifying Event Enrollment

If your current coverage is terminated at any point during the remainder of this year, you will need to contact Student Financial Services within 31 days so that you may be covered under Gordon’s SHIP.
