All campus-based students enrolled 3/4 time or more (general credit threshold for 3/4 time is 9 credits for undergrads and 7 credits for grads with some exceptions) are required by Massachusetts State law to enroll in the Student Health Insurance or be covered by a health insurance plan with comparable coverage. To ensure compliance with Massachusetts law Simmons University students are automatically enrolled in and billed for the Student Health Plan, which is separate from the Health Center fee. To read the details on this law, click here. Students are not allowed to waive coverage with a Health Safety Net Plan.
Students enrolled less than 3/4 time are not eligible for the student health insurance. If you enroll in the student health insurance, but drop below the 3/4 time threshold within 60 days of 8/15/2023, you will lose coverage. If as a new Spring student you enroll in the student health insurance, but drop below the 3/4 time threshold within 60 days of 1/1/2024, you will lose coverage. Students enrolled in online only classes are not eligible for the student health insurance.

Although all students are automatically enrolled in the plan each year unless they file a waiver, qualified applicants who are eligible to enroll in the plan are encouraged to fill out an enrollment form online. The enrollment form will confirm that you want the Student Health Insurance, and result in you receiving an insurance card sooner than through the automatic enrollment process.
If you have a comparable health insurance plan, you may waive the student coverage by clicking on the waiver form below. You will need to have your health insurance information readily available before proceeding. Upon confirmation of a properly completed waiver, the charge for medical insurance will be reversed on your student account. If you lose coverage during the academic year, then you are obligated to obtain other comparable coverage or enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan within 60 days.
