STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN
2012-2013 Academic Year
Wheelock College is pleased to announce that we have teamed up with Blue Cross and Blue Shield to provide Health Insurance coverage for our students.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires undergraduate and graduate students, enrolled three-quarters time or more to participate in a qualified student health insurance plan.
Wheelock College is obligated by law to provide the proper measures and to ensure that students will meet this requirement.
Any student that is not covered by a qualifying health insurance program may obtain coverage through the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Student Health Insurance Plan, which is an alternative program arranged by the College and administered through University Health Plans, Inc. Please read the brochure provided for specific information regarding coverage. Please note, if you had the insurance for the 2011-2012 Academic Year, changes were made to the plan design.
All new spring undergraduate students are automatically billed the spring premium for the health insurance, which is included as part of the tuition.
If a student is covered by a qualified health insurance program, the student MUST waive the coverage offered by Wheelock College, either online or by contacting the Health Insurance Coordinator. To waive the insurance, proof of alternate health coverage is required.
The deadline for new spring students to waive the insurance is January 31, 2013. If a waiver form is not submitted by January 31, 2013 the student will automatically be enrolled in the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Student Health Insurance Plan. There will be no refunds.
