Welcome to the Massachusetts Maritime Academy Student Health Insurance Plan
State law requires that all full and 3/4 time students have health insurance coverage that meets or exceeds the minimum standards as set forth in Massachusetts Law C.15A, s.18 (text available on the http://mass.gov website). State Law requires all registered students attest to comparable coverage or be enrolled in the schools student health insurance plan. If you do not complete the online insurance waiver by the Fall deadline date of September 30, 2023 you will automatically be enrolled and your account will be charged.
The Student Health Plan for the 2023-2024 Policy Year is through Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts. Massachusetts Maritime Academy has partnered with University Health Plans to administer the plan and help with waiver, enrollment, or benefit-related questions. University Health Plans can be reached at 833-251-1708 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
