Congratulations on your upcoming graduation, an exciting time! Here is some important information.
When you graduate, your Suffolk Student Health Insurance Plan (SSHIP) will remain active through the end of the policy period, e.g. August 21st. However, since you will no longer be a registered Suffolk student you are no longer eligible to use Suffolk's Counseling, Health & Wellness services. Please refer to your health insurance carrier on your insurance card for a list of alternative providers that will be available to you after your graduation effective date.
If you are a graduating student currently enrolled in the SSHIP, then you will need to prepare to purchase an alternative form of health insurance for coverage after the expiration date, e.g. August 21st. SSHIP cannot be extended if you are not a registered and eligible Suffolk student, so it's important to have a solution in place in order to avoid a lapse in health insurance coverage. If you need help assessing your health care options prior to graduation, please feel free to contact us here at Counseling, Health & Wellness (617) 573-8260 or University Health Plans (617) 472-5324
