Insurance Information for Graduates

You must have health insurance coverage when you graduate from college.

Berklee's insurance administrator, Gallagher Student Health, offers short-term medical insurance, which you may purchase directly. Please note, however, that short-term medical insurance plans are not compliant with Massachusetts laws regarding health insurance. If you plan to live in Massachusetts after graduation, you can get new coverage through the Massachusetts Health Connector, which is the Massachusetts insurance marketplace. 

Through the Massachusetts Health Connector, you’ll find:

  • a variety of plan options and costs;
  • dental insurance plans; and 
  • low- or no-cost health coverage options, based on income level.
Enrollment Deadlines

If you qualify for a subsidized plan through the Massachusetts Health Connector, you can apply and enroll at any time.

If you do not qualify for help paying for coverage, you will need to enroll within 60 days of losing your student health insurance plan or other coverage, or wait until the next open enrollment period. The Berklee Student Health Insurance Plan runs through August 14. 

For more information and to enroll, visit the Massachusetts Health Connector or
