Medical Insurance

Massachusetts law requires all students carrying at least 75 percent of the full-time curriculum to be covered under a qualifying medical insurance plan. If you do not wish to participate in the Boston University Medical Insurance Plan, you must annually file a Medical Insurance Waiver form that certifies coverage under a comparable medical insurance plan.
