Universal Health Care

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts passed the Universal Health Care Act in 1988. Its provisions require that all full-time and three-quarter-time students be covered by health insurance that contains comprehensive, specified areas. Students must either enroll in the policy provided by the University or negotiate a hard waiver stipulating that the personal coverage already possessed contains all of the required coverage. No student can be admitted to class until one of the above options has been exercised.
