All students may seek medical care at the Health Service, regardless of what health insurance you have.
Wellesley College offers our Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) through our broker University Health Plans.
If you are covered by MassHealth or a Massachusetts subsidized Health Benefit Plan then you are eligible to waive the Student Health Insurance Plan. Please note that Health Safety Net, MassHealth Limited, and Children’s Medical Security Plans are not considered comparable to the Student Health Insurance Plan and you are not eligible to waive the Student Health Insurance Plan with those plans.
Health Service submits claims for the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) ONLY.
Health Service does NOT submit bills/ claims to non- SHIP. Students are responsible for payment of their own statments. We encourange students to submit paid bills to their insurance plan for reimbursement. The initial statement for services rendered is sent electronically to the student’s Portal. After 45 days (from billing date), all unpaid statements are posted to student’s Wellesley College student account with a $5 service fee and subject to College billing procedures.
