FAQ: Getting started

How do I enroll?

Full-time MIT students are automatically enrolled in the MIT Student Health Insurance Plan and billed for the cost. Other eligible individuals  must complete the enrollment process that is appropriate for their eligibility status. Details are on the Enrollment page.

How do I create a Gallagher Student Health account?

If you do not already have a Gallagher account, you should have received an email with the subject line, “Verify Your Gallagher Student Health Account.” This email will contain a link and temporary password you will use to log into the Gallagher Student Health website. Follow the link to log in, and create a new, unique password when prompted.

If you didnt receive the email, contact Gallagher customer service at 1-844-333-1466.

Once you’ve logged on with your new password, follow the appropriate link to either waive coverage for yourself or enroll family members, upload any required supporting documentation for family enrollment, and submit.

I am enrolled in the Executive MBA (EMBA) program. Can I enroll in MIT SHIP?

Yes. Students enrolled in the Executive MBA program have the option to enroll themselves and family members in MIT SHIP. To enroll, you will need to create a Gallagher account and complete the MIT SHIP enrollment form and any family members you want to enroll.
