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 fall term on their accounts. Students who do not require the College's health plan must submit a waiver through Gallagher Koster.
The last day to waive the fall (annual) health insurance was September 15, 2015. The Annual Coverage (Fall term) provides insurance for students beginning September 1, 2015 through August 31, 2016. The cost of the Annual Plan for Graduate Students is $1995. The cost of the Annual Plan for Undergraduate Students is $1730. Students who didn't fully execute documents, or had health insurance added late may now submit documentation for waivers using the PETITION TO WAIVE FORM. This form will close on the GK portal on September 25, 2015.
If you do not receive an approved Health Insurance Waiver EMAIL for Gallagher Koster, you are responsible for the Health Insurance for the Fall Term.

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.
NOTE: In the event that a Student adds a course after the deadline to waive, and that course puts them in the credit load criteria listed above, the student is responsible for the health insurance if they have not submitted and obtained an approved waiver.
