    Waiving the Student Health Plan

    In order to waive the insurance, students must provide proof of a Massachusetts Qualified Student Health Plan. A qualifying health insurance plan is one that provides reasonable and comprehensive coverage of health services that include: preventive and primary care, emergency services, hospitalization benefits, ambulatory patient services and mental health services. Any health plan must provide reasonably accessible health services to the student in the area where the student attends school. Out of state Medicaid and health insurance policies from other countries are not acceptable. You will need your seven-digit Dean student ID number, date of birth and health insurance information to complete this process.

    Enrolling in the Student Health Plan

    Students who are enrolling the insurance plan are required to confirm their enrollment by completing the enrollment form using the link above.  You will need your Dean student ID number and date of birth to complete this process.
