The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires all full-time and three-quarter-time students to be enrolled in a qualifying student health insurance plan. This may be in the form of the student’s own qualifying health insurance plan, or the qualifying health insurance plan offered through Mount Ida College. Students must either purchase the school sponsored health plan or show proof of comparable coverage in an alternate US based health insurance plan.
All full-time and three-quarter-time students are automatically enrolled in, and charged for, the Mount Ida College Student Health Insurance Plan. An insurance card will be provided to students at the start of the academic year.
The Mount Ida College Student Health Insurance Plan is administered by Gallagher Student Health and Special Risk and underwritten by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. For detailed information on coverage offered through the Mount Ida College Student Health Insurance Plan, please visit the Gallagher Student Health website at
NOTE: If you do not wish to be enrolled you must waive the Student Health Insurance at www.gallagherstudent.com/mountida each year.
For questions concerning the plan, please call Gallagher Student Health at 1-800-401-7756. If you have questions about whether your plan is considered “qualifying” coverage by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, please consult these Frequently Asked Questions about student health insurance.
