Massachusetts’ regulations state students enrolled at least 75 percent of full-time credits are required to have health insurance. To ensure compliance, students are automatically enrolled in and billed for the Student Health Insurance Plan. If you are currently insured by a plan that provides comparable coverage, you can waive enrollment.
Waiving the FSHIP and Deadline
For new eligible students attending classes in the spring, the spring waiver deadline is January 26, 2016. If you miss the petition waiver deadline in the fall, you may not submit a waiver in the spring and you will be enrolled for the policy year. You will be responsible for 100 percent of the student insurance cost.

At the start of each academic year students may initiate the waiver process by clicking on the blue “I want to Waive Fisher Health Insurance Plan” button below. Once you are redirected to the Gallagher Student Health website, please click on "Student Waive" on the left hand side under "Student Access." Create an account if you have not already and then log in to the website with your credentials. Click on the red "I want to Waive" button and submit the form. Upon submission of the form you will receive a reference number. Keep this number for your records.
