Health and Wellness
Health Insurance (Students with Family Contributions $10,000 and below)
All students are required to have health insurance coverage while enrolled at Tufts. Students who do not have access to health insurance can receive coverage by Tufts. The fee for this insurance is added to your bill and should be waived if you have coverage already.
If your medical insurance coverage will not transfer to Tufts and you cannot cover the cost of the Tufts Health Insurance, you may qualify for a Health Insurance Grant if your family contribution is $10,000 or less. Please contact your Financial Aid Counselor to request a health insurance grant.
Co-pays and treatment costs (Students with Family Contributions $10,000 and below)
We understand that good health is essential during your time at Tufts and that the costs to maintain good health can be prohibitive. Undergraduate students with an expected family contribution of $10,000 and below are eligible to receive a total of $300.00 over every 12-month period (starting with the date of the first request) in reimbursements for health and wellness co-pays.
Request categories include:
- Medical co-pays
- Dental fees (Cosmetic procedures are excluded)
- Vision fees and expenses including eyeglasses and contact lenses
- Mental Health co-pays
To request a reimbursement, please complete our Health Reimbursement Request Form.
