Students can now submit the health insurance waiver for the 2016/2017 academic year. Students enrolled in a program and are taking nine or more credits at NSCC are required to have health insurance according to the Massachusetts' Universal Health Insurance law. Students do have the option to waive the health insurance if they have comparable coverage required by the regulation. Starting this Fall 2016, you must submit your health insurance waiver on-line to avoid paying the health insurance fee.
The health insurance waiver MUST be submitted on-line through Arthur J. Gallagher & Co website.
For security reasons, you will need to create a login in order to access the waiver page. You will need the following to complete the process:
Once you successfully answer all of the questions, NSCC will be notified and the waiver will be applied to your NSCC account within 24 hours.
For the Mass Health eligible students who select to enroll into the Premium Assistance program, you will go through an additional verification process, and it may take up to 72 hours for the waiver to be confirmed and applied to your NSCC account.
Questions regarding the student health insurance waiver or enrollment should be directed to Arthur J. Gallagher & Co at 1-877-308-4259.
Note: MassHealth Limited, Children’s Medical Security Plan, Health Safety Net or Free care are not considered comparable plans and will not be qualified for a waiver.
Health insurance is available through North Shore Community College.
Students who do not have a comparable health insurance coverage can obtain health insurance through NSCC. We work with Arthur J. Gallagher & Co to provide coverage for our students. You can find more information about the Benefits and Plan for this year on the Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.
If you decide to receive health insurance through NSCC you will need to pay for it in full or authorize us to use your financial aid if you have a credit available to help cover the cost. The coverage for the academic year 2016-2017 starts September 1, 2016 and ends August 31, 2017. If at any time you have to cancel or need coverage during the year, please contact our office for information.
Here are the steps to complete in order to pay for the insurance and/or authorize your aid to cover it.
