I chose not to remain enrolled in the MIT Student Health Insurance Plan (MIT SHIP) while I am on leave. When does my coverage end?

I chose to remain enrolled in the MIT Student Health Insurance Plan (MIT SHIP) while on leave. When does my additional year of coverage begin?
Your additional year of coverage begins February 1 or September 1—whichever date comes first.
If I want to remain enrolled in the MIT Student Health Insurance Plan (MIT SHIP) while on leave, do I have to pay for this continued coverage?
Yes. If you chose to submit this form and extend your MIT SHIP coverage for one year, you will be responsible for paying all health insurance premiums for that period. 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.
When will I receive my first bill?
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.
When will payment be due?
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.
What should I do if I cannot pay the bill by the due date?
If you are unable to pay for any reason, contact Student Financial Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-258-8600 as soon as you receive your bill to set up a payment plan.
Who should I contact with questions about my benefits?
