    Student Health Insurance

    Massachusetts State Law requires all full-time and part-time college students enrolled in 9 or more credits to participate in a qualifying student health insurance program (SHP) or in a health insurance plan with comparable coverage.

    Dean College offers a comprehensive Student Health Plan (SHP) that exceeds the minimum standards required by the state. It is available to students without health insurance, for students who would like to supplement their own health insurance, or for those who do not participate in a SHP plan. The health plan, offered by Consolidated Health Plans (CHP), is specifically designed to meet student needs. It provides 24 hour a day coverage for a full year, from August to August, and provides coverage in the Dean College/Franklin/Milford area. The Dean College Student Health Plan also provides coverage for services anywhere in the United States and abroad.

    Coverage through insurance carriers owned and operated outside the United States or coverage through foreign national health service programs are not in compliance with Massachusetts State regulations and will not provide the student with comparable health insurance coverage.

    To ensure compliance with Massachusetts State law, all international students are automatically enrolled in and charged for the Dean College Student Health Plan. Learn more about the Student Health Plan by reading our Student Health Insurance Plan Brochure.
