Health Insurance

Massachusetts requires that all students enrolled in nine credits or more each semester have health insurance. Students enrolled in nine credits or more will be automatically enrolled in the College’s Student Health Insurance Plan. Student insurance costs are approximately:

  • $3,964 for a full year of coverage
  • $2,643 for spring and summer only
  • $1,323 for summer only

The College’s Student Health Insurance Plan is through Gallagher Student Insurance. Students must complete an online waiver form during the enrollment waiver period demonstrating that they have comparable health insurance coverage. Normally, opportunities to enroll or to waive insurance coverage will occur in the month prior to beginning of a semester. Waivers need only be submitted once per school year. Specific enrollment/waiver deadlines will be announced on the College website, on, and in the student newsletter.

Insurance Enrollment/Waiver Periods

  • August – Covers the entire academic year (September-August)
  • December – Covers spring and summer semester only (January-August)
  • May – Covers summer semester only (May-August)

Students in certificate programs who reside in a state other than Massachusetts may be required to show evidence of their own health insurance. 


The estimated costs of books and supplies vary by program, but average between $500 and $1,300 per year. For more information go to or visit the virtual bookstore at

Labouré College of Healthcare offers an extended line of credit to allow your bookstore charges to be applied to your student account. Approximately 30 days prior to the start of a semester, you will receive an email regarding how you can purchase books through the Online Bookstore, using the line of credit. The charges added to your student account will need to be paid by the end of the first month of classes.
