Yes. If you chose to submit this form and extend your MIT Student Extended Insurance Plan coverage for one year, you will be responsible for paying all health insurance premiums for that period. This includes paying for the MIT Student Medical Plan, which is normally covered by tuition. You must pay your health insurance premiums whether or not you use your insurance benefits. These charges are added to your student account, and you are responsible for reviewing your statement on MITPAY and submitting payment to Student Financial Services on time.
You will receive an email from the Student Financial Services office to notify you when a new bill is available. Bills are sent out around the 10th of each month.
Payment will be due the first day of the month after you receive a bill. For example, a bill received July 12 will be due August 1.
If you are unable to pay for any reason, contact Student Financial Services at email@example.com or 617-258-8600 as soon as you receive your bill to set up a payment plan.
