Saint Mary’s College requires all full-time undergraduate students to have health insurance. The minimum requirements for health insurance coverage are established by SMC and are listed here. The H&WC is pleased to announce that Anthem Blue Cross (ABC) will provide our Saint Mary's College Student Health Insurance Plan (SMC-SHIP) for the 2019-2020 academic year.

The SMC-SHIP is designed for SMC full-time undergraduate students, and international graduate students, and assures affordable access to health care.  All undergraduate students (incoming and returning) are automatically enrolled in SMC-SHIP. If you already have health insurance that meets the minimum coverage requirements and are interested in waiving out of the SMC-SHIP, please complete the online waiver The online waiver will prompt you to answer questions that will determine if you qualify to waive the SMC-SHIP.  Please review the information below about the benefits of the SMC-SHIP and waiving out of the SMC-SHIP.
