STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN
2016-2017 Academic Year
New England Law | Boston is pleased to announce that for the 2016-2017 Academic Year we have teamed up with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (BCBS) and University Health Plans (UHP) to provide health insurance coverage for our students. Details about the Student Health Insurance Plan can be found by selecting Benefit Information in the left navigation menu.
All students enrolled in 9 or more credits are required by Massachusetts State law to enroll in the Student Health Insurance or be covered by a health insurance plan with comparable coverage. Therefore, all students enrolled in 9 or more credits are automatically charged the Student Health Insurance Fee. If the student is already enrolled in a comparable health insurance plan, then the student must fill out an online waiver form. The online waiver form can be accessed by selecting waiver form in the left navigation menu. If you do not submit an online waiver form by the deadline below, you will automatically be enrolled in the New England Law | Boston’s Student Health Insurance Plan and responsible for the fee.
The Student Health Insurance Fee is $2,332 and will be charged on the fall tuition bill. Annual coverage is effective 8/1/16-7/31/17. The deadline to waive the Annual Student Health Insurance Plan is August 22, 2016.
Students entering in the Spring Semester must meet the insurance requirement as well. The Spring Student Health Insurance Fee is $1,363 and will be charged on the spring tuition bill for NEW Spring Semester students. Spring coverage is effective 1/1/17-7/31/17. The deadline to waive for the Spring Student Health Insurance Plan is January 4, 2017.
