For ALL students attending a location in Massachusetts: Undergraduate students taking 9 or more credits, or Graduate students taking 6 or more credits will be assessed the health insurance charge for the spring term on their accounts. Students who do not require the College's health plan must submit a waiver through Gallagher Koster.
The health insurance waiver period is OPEN. Students who have comparable health insurance to the State of MA guidelines should waive their health online (all waiver request MUST BE SUBMITTED ON LINE). The last day to waive health insurance is February 6, 2015.
Please visit the Gallagher Koster website to waive- https://www.gallagherstudent.com/students/student-home.php?idField=1155,
First time users will need to create an account. All others should log in with their established credentials. After logging in, under STUDENT ACCESS select the link Student Waive/Enroll. On the next screen select- click I WANT TO WAIVE. You will need to enter all pertinent details related to your health insurance and other personal information to identify yourself.
Students CANNOT waive using certain Mass Health Plans- Mass Health Limited, the Health Safety Net, and the Children's Medical Security Plan; these plans do not meet the criteria. Additionally, if you have a plan that only offers EMERGENCY service, this also, is not acceptable. Students will receive two emails from Gallagher Koster after submitting their waiver request. The first email is notification that your request is received. The second notification will confirm whether or not your plan has been approved. If your plan is denied for a waiver, the email will list the reason for denial and your next steps.
