Patient Portal Instructions



College Insurance:

The Smith College BCBS Student Blue Insurance Plan covers the cost of the MeningitisB vaccine at 100%.


Here's how the insurance reimbursement process works for students with college insurance:


Charges for the vaccine are billed to BCBS directly, and the charge is posted to your Smith financial account. This charge will be offset once we receive reimbursement from BCBS, usually within 3 weeks from the date the charge was posted.


Private Insurance:

We will mail an insurance claim form to you via campus mail, along with instructions for completing the form. Please submit the completed claim form directly to the Claims Department of your insurance company.


If the charge is not covered by insurance, please makes checks payable to Smith College and mail to the office of Student Financial Services.


We are not able to bill your private insurance. We are happy to answer questions about the process.


Please refer to insurance information, HERE.

Please call 413-585-2250 during our regular hours, Monday-Friday 8:30am-5:00pm.
