Health Insurance

The services provided through Lasell University Health Services are free for both resident and commuter undergraduate students. A student's health insurance will only be billed if it is necessary to send out labs or prescribe medications. The student is responsible for any cost not covered by health insurance.

Lasell University has partnered with Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts and University Health Plans to provide health insurance coverage for our students. All full-time students are required by Massachusetts State Law to have health insurance coverage either through the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) or by a different health insurance plan with comparable coverage. 

The student health insurance plan is coordinated through Lasell University Student Accounts. If you would like to waive the automatic insurance charge, please visit Student Health Insurance for additional information.
