Health Insurance Policy

According to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and MCPHS policy, all matriculated students (regardless of enrollment) must be covered by a health insurance program. The University makes available a general health insurance program that meets the required standards. This policy is provided by an independent carrier, beginning September 1 and continuing 12 months. Insurance brochures will be available online. Students will be automatically enrolled in this plan unless an on line waiver is completed and received by the University by the published deadline. Students registering late must submit the waiver at that time. The waiver stipulates that personal coverage will be maintained during the enrollment period. If the University does not receive the online waiver prior to the published deadline, the student will be billed for the insurance premium and will remain responsible for payment of said premium. The waiver must be renewed annually.

Instructions for electronically completing the waiver are available in the student account center portal, on the back of the electronic student account statement or at www.universityhealthplans.com.

All international students must enroll in the University's insurance program with the exception of:

Those international students whose sponsoring institutions have a signed agreement with MCPHS University that complies with the University's health insurance waiver requirements or international students with a plan for which their health insurance company's primary home office is based in the United States AND the policy provides comparable coverage to the University student health insurance plan. Travel insurance plans and short-term limited duration plans are not comparable.

MCPHS Online students are exempt from the health insurance regulations of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. MCPHS Online students are not eligible to participate in the student health insurance plan.
