Newton-Wellesley Collegiate Health offers care to all students regardless of your insurance coverage.
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.
Wellesley College will cover copayments up to $50 per visit for students receiving services at our campus health center.
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.
