Health Insurance and HUHS Waiver Process

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires students who are more than half time and studying in Massachusetts to be covered by health insurance. All Harvard students are automatically enrolled in the Harvard University Student Health Program (HUSHP) and the cost of the program is applied to their student bill. Students with comparable health insurance coverage may waive the Student Health Insurance Plan by completing the online waiver form by July 31 for the fall term or full academic year and January 31 for the spring term.

Part-time students enrolled half time or less may waive both the Student Health Fee and Student Health Insurance Plan by completing the online waiver form by July 31 for the fall term or full academic year and January 31 for the spring term.

Waivers must be completed by the appropriate deadline or the charges will remain on your student bill.
