Student Health Insurance

Domestic Students/U.S. Residents

Saint Michael’s College requires that every full-time undergraduate student enrolled in 12 or more credits have medical insurance coverage- either a personal policy, or the one offered by the College. Students are automatically enrolled in the Saint Michael’s Student Health Insurance program and charged the annual premium without exception unless they are already covered under another policy and complete the online Medical Insurance Waiver Form by the published deadline. Graduate students may enroll in the insurance plan directly with WellFleet.

Students that purchase the WellFleet coverage can print insurance cards from their WellFleet account but will also receive a hard copy mailed to their home address.

Spring 2023 transfer students should contact Student Financial Services if they wish to purchase health insurance through the college. The Spring 2022 Insurance rate is $1,223.

The 2021-2022 annual premium for the SMC Student Health Insurance Plan is $1,994. The current Spring 2022 insurance rate is $1,223. Updated amounts will be provided in late spring of 2023.
