Massachusetts requires that student attending colleges in the
state carry health insurance. Students may have coverage through
their family's plan, their employment or other source. Students
who need to purchase health insurance have the option to
purchase a reasonably priced plan offered through the college.
The Finance Office administers this option.

Health insurance coverage varies by plan. There are some 1,500
insurance plans in the United States. Whenever you need care that
you hope will be covered by your insurance, it is a good idea to
verify that coverage before incurring the expense. At Student Health
Services, we have developed instructions to support you in calling
your insurance carrier about benefits and costs for care. Click
