Health Insurance Solutions

In 2008 MHEC received a grant from the Lumina Foundation to provide member institutions with a sustainable student health insurance program. Created in conjunction with MHEC’s Student Health Benefits Advisory Committee, MHECare was launched to address growing health care costs, providing robust health reform compliant benefits to students, streamlined plan administration, and economies of scale through MHEC’s purchasing power. MHECare helps institutions support the student learning experience by providing protection from unexpected medical expenses. Through collaborative agreements, MHECare benefits are also accessible to any eligible institution in the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE), the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB), and the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE).

In response to requests from member institutions, MHEC assembled a committee of member institutions to expand the suite of MHECare offerings beyond the traditional fully-insured student health plan.
