All degree-seeking MALS students taking a half unit or more of Reed classes continuously each term, including summers, are eligible to enroll in the Reed College health plan. Eligible dependents—legal spouse and dependent children under 19 years of age (25 if a full-time student)—may be enrolled under the eligible student's coverage, as well. Students are allowed one term of non-enrollment in their progression to the MALS degree; a second term of non-enrollment would result in termination of coverage. A student who is unable to return to classes because of extenuating circumstances may qualify to purchase coverage for an additional period of time.

The rates for graduate students are somewhat higher than for undergraduates. However, MALS students may choose their own primary care providers off campus. In addition, MALS students who join the Reed health plan may seek medical attention from the Reed health center, preferably by appointment, but also on a drop-in basis. The health center requires students seeking their services to complete a confidential health history form.

The Plan offers access to the Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Oregon's provider network. Students will find detailed information on the plan benefits, costs, and online enrollment by visiting regence.com (click on "Find Your School" and enter "Reed College") or by calling Regence Customer Service at 888/367-2116.
