Health Insurance

In order to ensure compliance with Massachusetts’ mandate on health insurance coverage, all registered SSW students taking 3/4 or full-time credit hours or more are automatically enrolled in and billed for the School’s health insurance plan.

About the plan:

The School's 2021-2022 annual plan is effective September 1, 2021 to August 31. 2022.

Information about the School's plan can be found here: www.gallagherstudent.com/SmithSSW

Waiving coverage:

Students may waive the School's plan by providing proof of alternative, comparable coverage.

Waivers for the 2021-2022 annual plan are accepted until August 3, 2021.
