Health Insurance

According to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and MCPHS policy, all students (regardless of enrollment) must be covered by a comprehensive health insurance program. The University makes available a general policy, provided by an independent insurance carrier, which meets these standards. Students will be automatically enrolled in this plan unless a waiver (which must be renewed annually) is completed and received by Student Financial Services.

Spring 2019 students can fill out the waiver at www.universityhealthplans.com. The waiver for Fall 2019 students will be available soon. If you need assistance, please call 1.800.437.6448.

All international students must enroll in the plan with the exception of:

  • Those international students whose sponsoring institutions have a signed agreement with MCPHS that complies with the University’s health insurance waiver requirements.
  • 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's student health insurance plan.

International students who do not fall under either of the above conditions MUST purchase the University’s student health insurance plan and therefore are not eligible for a waiver.
