Student Health Insurance

Student Health Insurance Plan

All students taking 9 or more credits are required by Massachusetts State law to enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan or be covered by a health insurance plan with comparable coverage. To ensure compliance with Massachusetts State law, Simmons University students are automatically enrolled in and billed for the Student Health Insurance Plan, which is unrelated to the mandatory Health Center fee. Students are not allowed to waive coverage with a foreign insurance carrier or the Health Safety Net Plan. Information about Student Health Insurance Plan coverage and benefits is available on the University Health Plans website.

Please note: Simmons University does not offer Student Health Insurance to students participating in online programs, students enrolled in less than 9 credits OR the dependent(s) of any Simmons University student.

If you are not eligible for coverage through Simmons University, please visit the Health Connector. The Health Connector can help you compare plans, get information and choose the plan that's right for you. Got to MAhealthconnector.org or call 1-877 MA ENROLL (1-877-623-6765).
