Student Health Insurance

All students enrolled in 9 or more credits are required by Massachusetts State law to enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) or be covered by a health insurance plan with comparable coverage. To ensure compliance with Massachusetts law, undergraduate students are automatically billed for the SHIP, unless a waiver form is completed before the deadline. International students are required to enroll in the SHIP plan.  Graduate students are not eligible due to the nature of their programs. Students that are entering a 5th year program and were previously enrolled as an undergraduate are eligible and can call University Health Plans at 800-437-6448 to enroll. Students must either complete the waiver or enrollment form each year.

Plan Highlights

The Stonehill College SHIP is provided by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts. The plan is ACA compliant and includes access to Blue Cross Blue Shield's national PPO network of providers. Students do not have to select a primary care physician and referrals are not required. Highlights of the SHIP in-network benefits include $150 deductible, $30 office visit copay, $150 emergency room copay, 10% coinsurance for labs and x-rays, and 100% coverage for preventative care.
