Health insurance

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires students to be covered by a comprehensive health insurance program. Accordingly, the college makes available a general health insurance program to meet the state standards set by the Commonwealth. The insurance carrier is Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts. This policy begins in mid-August for the fall semester and continues for 12 months. Insurance information is mailed in late May. Students will be irrevocably enrolled in this plan unless a waiver is completed and received by Student Accounts by June 30. The waiver stipulates that personal coverage will be maintained during the enrollment period. If a waiver is not on file by June 30, the student will be billed for the insurance premium and will be responsible for payment of said premium. The waiver must be renewed annually. All international students are required to purchase the insurance plan offered through Olin College.
