Note: The following information is for new incoming students for the Spring 2015 semester. The waiver period for Fall 2015 will begin in July.
Please read the following information explaining the Massachusetts law that requires all students in Massachusetts to carry health insurance either on their family’s plan or their own plan, or through a student insurance plan offered by Regis College. We have negotiated what we believe is a reasonable rate of $936 for undergraduates and $1,139 for graduate students for the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Student Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan offered for the remainder of the 2014-2015 academic year. This plan is underwritten by HPHC Insurance Company, an affiliate of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, and administered by United Healthcare Student Resources.
For the 2014-2015 academic year the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Student Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan benefits have been enhanced to comply with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Coverage for essential benefits now provides no overall maximum dollar limit (Per Insured Person per Policy Year) and recommended Preventive Care Services are covered at 100% of Preferred Allowance in-network with no deductible or copay. For further information, including costs, benefits, exclusions, reductions and limitations, and the terms under which the coverage may remain in force, please refer to the on-line plan information at www.uhcsr.com/regis.
We encourage you to review your own plan very carefully, especially if you are from outside Massachusetts, in order to ensure that you will have adequate health insurance coverage when you are away from home at Regis.
Massachusetts law requires all undergraduate students taking nine (9) credits or more and all graduate students taking 6.75 credits or more to either demonstrate proof of comparable health insurance coverage or purchase a Student Health Program through their institution of higher education. In order to assure that all Regis College students are properly insured to meet the state law, all students are initially charged on their student account for the cost of the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Student Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan. It is then your choice whether to enroll in this insurance plan or waive the insurance and remain on your family or individual plan. If you waive the insurance plan by demonstrating proof of comparable insurance through our on-line system, the charge will be removed from your student account. If instead you enroll in the plan, the charge will remain on your account. Directions for waiving or enrolling are below.
The Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Student Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan provides coverage from January 20 through August 19, 2015. Insurance cards will be mailed to your home address on file with the College or may be printed from www.uhcsr.com by creating an online account. If you have any questions about benefits, please do not hesitate to call HPHC Customer Service at 800-977-4698.
The enrollment/waiver period will begin December 12, 2014 and end February 6, 2015.
If you have questions, please call the Regis College Center for Student Services at 781-768-7270.
