Congratulations on your upcoming graduation, an exciting time! Here is some important information about your Suffolk health insurance that you'll need to know.
Once you have graduated, your Suffolk health insurance plan remains active through the end of the policy period. Although, since you will no longer be a registered Suffolk student you are no longer eligible to use Health & Wellness Services as a care provider, regardless of insurance coverage. Please refer to your health insurance carrier on your insurance card for a list of alternative providers available to you after graduation.
If you are a graduating student currently enrolled in the SSHIP, you will need to purchase an alternative form of health insurance for coverage after the August expiration date. The SSHIP rate cannot be extended if you are not an eligible Suffolk student, so it's important to have a solution in place in order to avoid a lapse in coverage. If you need help assessing your health care options prior to graduation, please feel free to contact us here at the Health and Wellness Center (617) 573-8260 or University Health Plans (617) 472-5324
