ABOUT INSURANCE


 

Wellesley College Health Service offers care to all students regardless of your insurance coverage.  

Wellesley College offers College insurance through our agent University Health Plans, Inc. The insurance coverage is provided by Blue Cross Blue Shield.

All students enrolled at least 3/4 time are required by Massachusetts State law to enroll in the Student Health Insurance or be covered by a health insurance plan with comparable coverage. To ensure compliance Wellesley College students, including Davis Scholars are automatically enrolled in and billed for the Student Health Plan. 

If you are covered by MassHealth or a Massachusetts subsidized Health Benefit Plan then you are eligible to waive the Student Health Insurance Plan. However, 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 these plans.

Health Service submits claims for the BCBS Student Health Insurance Plan ONLY.

Health Service does not submit bills/ claims to non­ BCBS Student Health Insurance Plans. Each student is responsible for payment of their own bills. Each student is encouraged to submit paid bills to their insurance plan for reimbursement. The initial billing statement for services rendered is sent electronically to the student’s (secure) 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.
