U.S. students with comparable coverage under another major medical insurance plan may submit a waiver.Students who have out of area HMOs (for example Kaiser Permanente, Empire of NY, Triple-S, and others) may not have comparable coverage as these types of plans only provide coverage for emergency care or when provided by a network of clinicians not available in the Fisher College Boston area.
International students are required to have a U.S.- based health insurance. Foreign carriers with U.S.-based satellites are still considered foreign insurance and do not qualify for the health insurance waiver.Massachusetts regulation does not consider insurance carriers outside of the United States. or coverage by a foreign national health service program comparable to a qualifying student health insurance plan (for example Tokio Marine, ISO, Triple-S, and others).
