Summer 2022: Coronavirus Information

As a Harvard Summer School student, you are required to have health insurance that covers major illnesses and accidents within the United States, or in your destination country or countries if you are participating in a Summer School study abroad program.

If you do not have such coverage with a US or other carrier, you are required to purchase it through the Summer School. Information about the Summer School Health Insurance Plan will be listed here when available.

See the Harvard Summer School Student Handbook for information on using Harvard University Health Services (HUHS). Nonresidential students who are seen at HUHS may be required to pay a fee for services. Students may also choose to visit a nearby hospital or clinic, such as Mount Auburn Hospital, if necessary.

Waiving Health Insurance

To waive the health insurance, log in to My DCE, select “My Enrollment Requirements,” and then “Health Insurance,” and follow the instructions to supply both the name of your insurance company and your policy number.

Insurance Cards

Once you are enrolled in the Harvard Summer School health insurance plan, you will receive an email notification from the insurance provider with instructions on how to obtain your insurance card. Be sure to review this email as it is the only notification you will receive about your insurance card.

Carry your insurance card with you at all times.

Insurance for Study Abroad Programs

If you are participating in a study abroad program, you must have insurance that covers major illnesses and accidents abroad. If you do not have this coverage, you must purchase it through the Summer School Study Abroad Health Insurance Plan.
