I'm losing my health insurance

Whether you’re losing alternative health insurance or are about to end your coverage under the Harvard University Student Health Program (HUSHP), acquiring new coverage depends on your particular situation and can take time. In all cases, students should take action well in advance to secure continuous health insurance coverage.

Graduating Students

It may take several weeks to complete the enrollment process for new coverage, so begin your search early. Be advised that state laws regulate health insurance plans, and not all state policies are the same. (Learn more)

Leave of Absence/Withdrawal

When a student takes a leave of absence or withdraws from Harvard, their last date of attendance as recorded by the registrar’s office will determine when the HUSHP coverage will end.

Students should contact Member Services as early as possible to review insurance options. (Learn more)

Waiver Rescind

If you previously waived the Student Health Insurance Plan, but have recently lost your non-Harvard health insurance, you may be eligible to rescind your waiver and enroll in HUSHP. This must be done within 60 days of losing your non-Harvard insurance coverage. (Learn more)
