Health Insurance

In the state of Massachusetts, health insurance is mandatory. Gallagher Student Health Insurance Plan is our selected health insurance provider. To waive insurance, your coverage must be comparable to the state’s mandatory plan. To find out if you qualify to waive your insurance, visit and review the FAQ document. 

Each year, students must elect to enroll in the insurance plan or, if you have a sufficient private insurance plan, waive the Gallagher Student Health Insurance Plan. You will make your selection via Gallagher's online portal. Until you complete this step, a hold will remain on your account. This hold will prohibit you from participating in the add/drop period at the start of the semester.

To access the online portal, please check your NEC email for an email from with the subject line "Verify Your Gallagher Student Health Account" detailing how to log in to your Gallagher account (please note that returning students with existing Gallagher accounts will still need to log in this way as this is a new system). Once you log in, you will notice "Enroll" and "Waive" buttons under the Plan Summary section. These will allow you to enroll in the insurance plan or complete a waiver request. It is mandatory for every student who has been billed for health insurance to complete this process. This lets us know if you intend to enroll in NEC’s health insurance plan or if you have sufficient private coverage and can waive the  Gallagher Student Health Insurance Plan. Please note that international students must enroll in the plan. The PDF linked below provides additional information on the waiver process. If you have questions regarding the insurance waiver, please review Gallagher's website for more information. 


2022-2023 Health Insurance Waiver Verification 



Refunds to domestic accounts will be processed via direct deposit; the Business Office will reach out with a link to put your direct deposit information in Nelnet.

With PayMyTuition, you can have your refund deposited into any bank, in any country, with any currency at better than bank exchange rates.
