Health Insurance


State law requires that all full and 3/4 time (9 credits per semester) students have health insurance coverage that meets or exceeds the minimum standards as set forth in Massachusetts Law C.15A, s.18 (text available on the website). State Law requires all registered students attest to comparable coverage or to enroll in the schools student health insurance plan. MMA does not know what your insurance covers.  Please contact your insurance company directly to determine if you can waive the school sponsored insurance.
