State Of Massachusetts Student Health Mandate

Student Health Insurance State of Massachusetts Mandate 

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts mandates that every full-time and part-time student enrolled in an institution of higher learning in Massachusetts must participate in a student health program or a health benefit plan with comparable coverage. A part-time student is defined as a student participating in at least 75% of the full-time curriculum.  For more information see  Massachusetts Student Health Insurance Program (SHIP)

  • Due to the Massachusetts mandate if you do not waive coverage and are within the 75% of full-time or more category you will be automatically enrolled.
  • The student (Named Insured, as defined in the Certificate) must actively attend classes for at least the first 31 days after the date for which coverage is purchased. Home study, correspondence, and enrollment in exclusively online courses do not fulfill the eligibility requirements that the student actively attend classes.
