STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN

2022-2023 Policy Year
 

In accordance with Massachusetts State Law, MCLA requires all undergraduate students registered in at least 9 credits and all graduate students registered in at least 7 credits to participate in the Student Health Insurance Plan unless proof of comparable coverage is provided. International students with a J-1 VISA are required to enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan.

All eligible students must either:

  • Complete the On-Line Enrollment Form.
  • Complete the On-Line Waiver Form.

Returning and new students for the Fall 2022 semester who fail to complete the on-line enrollment or waiver form by the fall waiver deadline will automatically be enrolled in MCLA’s Student Health Insurance Plan for the annual coverage period and will be billed accordingly.

Newly eligible students for the Sping 2023 semester who fail to complete the on-line enrollment or waiver form by the spring waiver deadline will automatically be enrolled in MCLA’s Student Health Insurance Plan for the spring coverage period and will be billed accordingly.

Waivers will not be accepted after the specified deadline, as provided by Massachusetts State Law. Completion of the on-line enrollment or waiver form is required annually.  Health Safety Net is not considered comparable coverage.

Please allow 3-5 business days from the date of your waiver submission for the credit to be reflected on your student bill.
