Tuition & Expenses

Student Health Insurance

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires that all full-time and three quarter time students, as defined by the school, be automatically enrolled in and billed for the Merrimack College Student Blue Plan.  

All students should complete either the online waiver or enrollment. Students who do not complete the insurance waiver are automatically enrolled in the Merrimack College Student Blue Plan insurance and are responsible for the charged premium, even if they are covered by another plan.

International Students: Please note that you cannot waive coverage unless you are currently enrolled in an insurance plan of comparable coverage through a U.S. based insurance company.
 

For students beginning in the fall semester the deadline to waive the insurance is September 6, 2016. The annual charged premium is $2,145.00. Insurance coverage begins on August 13, 2016 and continues through August 12, 2017.

For students beginning in the spring semester the deadline to waive the insurance is January 25, 2017. The charged premium is $1,270. Insurance coverage begins on January 13, 2017 and continues through August 12, 2017.

WAIVE INSURANCE

  • Log in (if you haven’t already)

  • Print or write down your reference number. Receipt of this number only confirms submission, not acceptance, of your form.

Please note that not all plans provide comparable coverage in Massachusetts. Be sure to check with your insurance company before waiving coverage. Short-term coverage(coverage that is not in place for the entire academic year) is not comparable coverage and requires enrollment in the College’s plan.

Note: Students who do not complete the online waiver by the published deadline will automatically be enrolled in the plan.
