Health Insurance Fee
As a Harvard Summer School student, you are required to have health insurance that covers major illnesses and accidents within the United States, or in your destination country or countries if you are participating in a Summer School study abroad program.
If you do not have such coverage with a US or other carrier, purchase it through the Summer School. Coverage is provided by HTH Worldwide. Download a brochure of the Harvard Summer School coverage.
Cost, enrollment, and waiver
The $200 premium is automatically charged unless you waive the insurance by Thursday, June 27. You may not enroll in or withdraw from the insurance plan after June 27.
To waive the health insurance before June 27 either:
- Log in to online services, select "Health Insurance," and follow the instructions to supply both the name of your insurance company and your policy number.
- Or submit the health insurance waiver form to Student Financial Services.
Summer School insurance does not entitle students not living in on-campus housing to use the medical services at University Health Services. Students not living on campus should visit a nearby hospital or clinic, such as Mt. Auburn Hospital, if necessary.
Once you are enrolled in the Harvard Summer School health insurance plan, you will receive an e-mail notification from HTH Worldwide with instructions on how to obtain your insurance card. Be sure to review this e-mail as it is the only notification you will receive about your insurance card.
Insurance for study abroad programs
If you are participating in a study abroad program, you must have insurance that covers major illnesses and accidents abroad. If you do not have this insurance, you must purchase it through the Summer School.
