Domestic Student Enrollment/Waiver Process

Students who have an insurance plan that meets the above standards may select to waive the Student Health Insurance Plan by completing the waiver form located in the left navigation menu of this page. Students who would like to enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan may complete the enrollment form located in left navigation menu of this page. Although students are automatically charged for the Student Health Insurance Plan, students will not be automatically enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan by the College until after add/drop deadline. Students should enroll as soon as possible to avoid difficulties in accessing their health insurance benefits. 

International Student Enrollment/Waiver Process

International students are enrolled on a mandatory basis and cannot waive the Student Health Insurance Plan.

Please note, health insurance plans marketed solely to international students are often not filed in the U.S., have limited benefits and/or coverage periods that do not comply with the Massachusetts Student Health Plan Regulations and the Endicott College waiver requirements. ISO, PSI and Student Medicover are examples of companies that do not meet the waiver requirements but market their plans to international students. The Endicott Student Health Insurance Plan meets F1/J1 visa requirements.

UHP is available to manage the enrollment and answer general questions about the insurance plan. To speak with a representative, please call (833) 251-1725 or send an email to info@univhealthplans.com. If you have specific questions regarding the benefits, please feel free to contact Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts at (888) 753-6615.


Students arriving for their first semester at Endicott are required to submit the Health Form and Immunization Record to Family Medicine Associates at Endicott College by July 1, 2021.
