The waiver period for Fall 2015 will begin July 14, 2015.

New for 2015-2016

  • Though the benefits of the sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan remain the same, Regis has partnered with Gallagher Student Health & Special Risk to provide waiver and enrollment services to our students beginning with the 15-16 year. The waiver and enrollment process will now take place at
  • ID cards are now available exclusively online for those students who have been enrolled.
  • Information entered into the online waiver form is subject to verification.
  • Waivers with Medicaid plans from outside of Massachusetts will no longer be accepted (Medicaid plans do not provide comprehensive services outside of their designated state)
  • International students who are not sponsored by their home country do not qualify to waive the Regis plan.

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. We have negotiated what we believe is a reasonable rate of $1,710 for both undergraduates and graduate students for the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Student Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan offered for the 2015-2016 academic year. This plan is underwritten by HPHC Insurance Company, an affiliate of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, and claims are administered by United Healthcare Student Resources.

For the 2015-2016 academic year the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Student Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan benefits remain compliant with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Coverage for essential benefits 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

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 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 prior to the deadline, the charge will be removed from your student account. If instead you enroll in the plan or do not waive prior to the deadline, 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 August 20, 2015 through August 19, 2016. Insurance cards for enrolled students are available online at by creating an online account. If you have any questions about benefits, please do not hesitate to call Gallagher Student Health & Special Risk at 844-484-0087.

The enrollment/waiver period will begin July 14, 2015 and end October 1, 2015.

In order to waive, you should have your current health insurance card available as this information will be necessary to complete the form. As you review your insurance options, we encourage you to use this checklist to determine if your current insurance plan is comparable to the Regis Student Health Insurance Plan.

If you know that you would like to enroll in the Plan, we encourage you to complete the enrollment form early to ensure access to your medical ID card on the Plan’s effective date.
