The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires that health insurance coverage be provided to all students attending Massachusetts Colleges and Universities who are registered for 75 percent of full-time curriculum. If you are registered for 75 percent of full-time curriculum, you will be automatically enrolled in the Springfield College Health Insurance Plan for the 2017-18 academic year. The rates for the 2017-18 academic year will be $2,555 for undergraduate students and $2,995 for graduate students.
If you currently have comparable health insurance coverage that is issued by a U.S. based insurance carrier and meets coverage limits mandated by the Commonwealth, you will be required to complete the Springfield College health insurance waiver form online at gallagherstudent.com/springfield. The waiver form must be completed by September 15, 2017, in order for the insurance charge to be credited.
If at a later date it is determined that your insurance does not meet the minimum state requirements, your account will be billed for the full amount.
