Open Enrollment

As your family looks towards the end of the Fall semester and the start of a new year, we wanted to let you know about an opportunity for you to consider Northeastern University’s Student Health Plan (NUSHP). NUSHP is administered by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and provides extremely comprehensive health benefits at a very affordable rate. In fact, our students often tell us this plan is better than most others available through the family’s employers. NUSHP is accepted by all Blue Cross Blue Shield participating providers throughout the United States.

Northeastern is offering all eligible students the opportunity to reconsider NUSHP and enroll for the remainder of the academic year, at a prorated cost. The prorated cost of the plan for an individual is $1664.00 and will provide coverage effective January 1, 2023 through August 31, 2023. You may also email NUSHP at NUSHP@northeastern.edu with any questions you may have about coverage, enrollment or eligibility. If you are interested in enrolling during our open enrollment, please fill out our ‘Midyear Enrollment Form’, which you can find on our forms page. 

Qualified Late Enrollment

Qualified Event: Loss of job, aged off existing health plan, change of job, changing plans due to coop or study abroad.

Students (and/or their spouse/dependents) who, due to a qualifying event, need to enroll in NUSHP after they have waived may do so by completing the Petition to Enroll Form. Completed forms with supporting documentation from provider are submitted to the NUSHP office. These forms must be submitted within thirty days from the date the existing coverage ends. If submission is beyond the thirty day period, it would be considered an unqualified late enrollment.

Students who, due to an unqualified event, wish to enroll in NUSHP after they have waived may do so by completing the Petition to Enroll Form. Coverage under NUSHP will be limited to emergency care only for 6 months. Disciplinary action may be taken if a student knowingly waives NUSHP without comparable coverage.

Spouse/Dependents Enrollment

Students enrolled in NUSHP may choose to purchase the same plan for their spouse and/or unmarried dependent children until age 19. To enroll, students will need to complete the Petition to Enroll Form and submit it to NUSHP office with proper documentation, i.e., marriage license and/or birth certificate. Plan is effective from the date of the open enrollment period or date of qualified event and will terminate at the end of the academic year. See Effective Dates and Cost.
