Who can utilize Suffolk CHW Health Services?

Any student who is currently registered for classes (full-time or part-time) and not a Suffolk University employee can be seen in CHW Health Services, regardless of your health insurance policy.

Once you have graduated, you are no longer eligible to use CHW Health Services, regardless of insurance coverage. Please refer to your health insurance carrier for a list of providers available to you after graduation. If a graduating student is enrolled in the Suffolk Student Health Insurance Plan with BCBS after the August expiration date, you will need to purchase an alternative form of health insurance for coverage.

Options for Graduating Students

When you graduate, your Suffolk Student Health Insurance Plan (SSHIP) will remain active through the end of the policy period (August 20). 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 August expiration date. SSHIP cannot be extended if you are not a registered and eligible Suffolk student. It is important to have a plan in place in order to avoid a lapse in health insurance coverage.
