Student Health Insurance

The Massachusetts Health Act of 1988 requires that students enrolled in institutions of higher education in Massachusetts must enroll in a qualifying student health insurance plan offered through the institution or enroll in another health insurance plan with comparable coverage. The Gallagher Student Health & Special Risk company services the plan offered at Williams. For general information on benefits, on how to enroll, or services issues, contact Gallagher Student Health & Special Risk at (800) 406-5205, e-mail WilliamsStudent@gallagherstudent.com or visit their website at www.gallagherstudent.com.

The Health Center is available to all students of Williams College regardless of their insurance.
