If you are currently insured by a health insurance plan that provides you with comparable coverage to the Student Health Insurance Plan then you may waive enrollment. However, please note the following:
- Not all plans provide comprehensive coverage in the Boston area such as out-of-state Medicaid plans, and certain HMOs and managed care plans. Be sure to check with your insurance company before waiving.
- Mass Health is accepted, but Mass Health Limited, Health Safety Net, and Children’s Medical Security Plans are not considered comparable to the Student Health Insurance Plan.
- If your comparable plan will end before 8/27/17, while you are in school, you must either enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan within 60 days of your other plan’s end date, or find comparable coverage elsewhere.
