The state of Massachusetts requires all Massachusetts residents to have healthcare insurance. As defined in 114.6 CMR 3.03: Mandatory Health Insurance Coverage (QSHIP):
"Students: Every full-time and part-time (a student who participates in at least 75% of the academic requirements) enrolled in a certificate, diploma or degree-granting program of higher education, must participate in his or her school's Student Health Program OR in a health benefit plan with comparable coverage as defined in 114.6 CMR 3.05(2)."
Therefore all eligible Boston Architectural College students are automatically enrolled and billed for the Student Health Insurance Plan. To opt out of the student health plan students must submit a Health Insurance Waiver Form showing proof of comparable coverage by Friday September 6, 2013.
If you need to waive this or sign up, please do so as soon as possible! The deadline is Friday September 6, 2013. Step-by-step instructions on how to do this can be found here.
