Waiving Health Insurance Coverage
|August 1 – January 31 (Fall)||July 31|

|By waiving, coverage will retroactively terminate back to the first day of the plan term (i.e., 8/1 or 2/1).|
Massachusetts law requires that any full-time or part-time student enrolled in an institution of higher learning in Massachusetts participate in a qualifying student health insurance program or in a health plan of comparable coverage. All Harvard students are automatically enrolled in the Harvard University Student Health Program (HUSHP) and charges are applied to their student bill.
Waiver Eligibility and Application
Students enrolled in a comparable health insurance plan may be eligible to waive the Student Heath Insurance Plan. Waivers of the Student Health Fee may be accepted in very limited cases. (Learn more)
