To comply with Massachusetts state regulations, all students are automatically charged for and enrolled in the annual student health insurance plan through Gallagher. Visit the College's health and counseling services page to understand choices regarding health insurance coverage.
If you do not waive the student health insurance plan by the deadline at www.gallagherstudent.com/Hampshire (access opens July 1), the insurance charge will remain on the student bill as a balance due.
Fees charged for the student health insurance plan are separate from the health services fee, which pays for using the College's on-campus health and counseling services.
Student Health Insurance Plan Deadlines:
- The deadline for waiving the Hampshire College Student Health Insurance Plan is August 16, 2015.
- Between August 17 and September 20, waiving is only considered under appeal with an online Petition to Waive.
- Coverage begins August 15. If the College insurance is used at any time after coverage commences, waiving is no longer an option.
- September 30 is the deadline for students to appeal denied waivers and petitions. Appeals received after this date will not be reviewed.
