Insurance and Billing

Newton-Wellesley Collegiate Health offers care to all students regardless of your insurance coverage.

Insurance

All students attending college in Massachusetts are required by Massachusetts state law to enroll in a Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) or be covered by a health insurance plan with comparable coverage.

Wellesley College offers a Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) through our agent, University Health Plans. The coverage is provided by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and meets the minimum creditable coverage requirements of state law and the Affordable Care Act.

For more information about health insurance, visit the SFS student health insurance page.

Billing for services

For students enrolled in the SHIP, claims for services will continue to be submitted by Newton-Wellesley Medical Group directly to SHIP.

For students enrolled in another health insurance plan, Newton-Wellesley Medical Group will submit claims to your insurance company directly on your behalf. 

For the remainder of the 2019/2020 school year, the services for which there are charges— vaccinations and lab services primarily—will not change. In most cases, these services will be fully covered by the student’s health insurance plan. However, depending on the student’s insurance plan and benefit structure, the student may be responsible for some of the cost of services. Students may also elect to be billed directly for privacy or other reasons.

If you are unsure of your insurance plan coverage, staff will try to assist you at the time of your visit.
