Health Insurance

All Tufts students are required to be covered by health insurance (it's a Massachusetts state law). Choose from the Student Health Plan or your own private  insurance.

Health Insurance is needed to pay for the following:
• Routine medical care
• Emergency care
• Lab tests - both at Health Service and other labs 
• Visits to specialists - both at Health Service and in private offices 
• Prescriptions 
• Emergency Room visits
• Medical equipment - such as orthopedic supplies 
• Private mental health visits
• Hospitalization

We help students and parents with health insurance needs.  We recognize that insurance bills can be confusing and encourage you to give us a call or come see us if you have questions or concerns.
