Welcome Northern Essex Community College Students

This site has been designed especially for you to provide information about health insurance.

If you are enrolled in 9 or more credits, and already covered by a health insurance plan that is comparable to the plan offered by Gallagher Student, then you may waive the insurance premium by completing an Online Health Insurance Waiver on the College's website. You will find instructions below.

If you are not already covered, and you are enrolled in 9 or more credits, Massachusetts state law requires that you purchase health insurance.

On this site you can:

  • Download a plan brochure or Frequently Asked Questions, by clicking on "My Benefits & Plan Information" to the left
  • Look for participating providers
  • Learn more about plan enhancements available to you
  • Email Gallagher Student or engage in live chat using the "Live Help" icon
  • Click on "Account Home" to view your personal coverage information, edit your primary address, or generate an ID card.

  • The Insurance Company Name
  • Your Group Number/Policy Number
  • Subscriber's Name (Policyholder's Name)

When you have this information, you are ready to complete the waiver.
