Medical Providers

For day-to-day medical needs and health care appointments, many students use Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates (HVMA) in Kenmore Square, a multi-specialty group practice very close to campus. HVMA also offers an Urgent Care Clinic and a 24-hour Medical Advice line: 617-421-1196.

Another nearby resource is Fenway Health. Fenway specializes in services for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community, HIV/AIDS, and people with limited access to health services. However, care is available to anyone. Fenway Health on Boylston Street: 617-927-6000.

Please note: Direct medical care is not available on campus, except Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine consultations, by appointment.

Health Insurance

The state of Massachusetts requires all full- and three-quarter-time students to be enrolled in a health insurance plan that offers comprehensive coverage that is in effect while the student is anywhere in the United States or abroad.

All full- and three-quarter-time students are automatically enrolled in, and charged for, the Boston Conservatory Student Health Insurance Plan. Students wishing to utilize alternate, comparable coverage must complete an online waiver form each year. Deadlines are posted on the Conservatory website, emailed to students, and indicated in all billing-related communications from the Conservatory.

The Boston Conservatory Student Health Insurance Plan is administered by Gallagher Student Health & Special Risk, and underwritten by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care in Massachusetts. National coverage is underwritten by UnitedHealthcare. For more information, please read the details outlined in the New Student Orientation section of this website.
