Student Health Insurance

Mandated by Law

Since September 1, 1989, the Massachusetts Law C.15A, s. 18 requires that every full-time and part-time student enrolled in an institution of higher learning in Massachusetts participate in a Student Health Insurance Program (SHIP) or in a health benefit plan with comparable coverage.  A part-time student is defined as a student participating in at least 75% of the full-time curriculum.

According to the state regulation comparable coverage is considered a health plan that provides comprehensive coverage, including preventive care, emergency services, surgical services, hospitalization benefits, ambulatory patient services, and mental health services. In addition, the services covered need to be reasonably accessible to the student in the area where the student attends school. Students are not allowed to waive coverage if their insurance carrier is from outside the U.S. (international insurance) or traveler's insurance.  For further information about the Curry College health insurance plan, please visit

If a student is covered by a qualified health insurance program, the student MUST waive the coverage offered by Curry College by July 15, 2017. You may complete the form online at To waive the insurance, proof of alternate health coverage is required.

If a waiver form is not submitted by July 15, 2017 the student will automatically be enrolled in the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts Student Health Insurance Plan. NO WAIVERS WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER THE DEADLINE.
