Effective Dates and Costs
NUSHP plans are effective the term that a student meets the minimum qualifications outlined by the State of Massachusetts. Students with a comparable domestic insurance plan are given the opportunity to waive NUSHP the term they meet the qualifications-see Waiver Deadlines. Eligible students need to waive each academic year. Also, see Petitioning to Enroll regarding enrolling in NUSHP after waiving and/or enrolling spouse/dependent(s). Spouse and/or child(ren) rates are in addition to the student rate.
Once enrolled in the plan it is for the full policy period indicated below. After the waiver deadline, the premium is not adjusted if a student decides to pick up another policy. Click here for 2013/2014 effective policy dates, and click here for 2014/2015 effective policy dates.
Exception (Midyear Adjustment): Students that finished their degree requirements in December and officially graduate in January may request a midyear adjustment in January. Request will not be reviewed until degrees are conferred in January. The deadline to submit this request was January 31, 2014. If requested the health plan would terminate effective January 31, 2014 and a prorated credit would be posted to their account. The request form can be found on the forms page here.
Eligible students may waive NUSHP via myNEU once they have been billed for NUSHP.

Note: UHCS Fee
*Graduate, CPS, and PTE students enrolled in NUSHP will also be charged the Health Center fee and be eligible for services at University Health and Counseling Services (UHCS). See table below. If a student waives NUSHP, the Health Center fee will also be waived, and the student will not have access to services at UHCS. However, students who waive NUSHP can request (or have an option of requesting) to be billed the Health Center fee to allow access to UHCS services by completing the UHCS Access Request Form located on the Forms Page. Visit the UHCS web site for additional information on services provided at the center.
