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 provides campuses that offer students a school-sponsored plan the flexibility to tailor plans specifically to meet the needs of their students with national carrier UnitedHealthcare StudentResources.
The Affordable Care Act continues to drive uncertainly in the market and through MHECare campuses will be well-served by a carrier that is compliant and fully equipped to rapidly respond to changes in regulations. Campuses can leverage MHECare with peace of mind that MHEC has performed its due diligence through a comprehensive and extensive RFP process, enabling student health administrators the opportunity to spend their time focused on efforts that will directly impact students.
The program is also available to postsecondary institutions of MHEC's sister compact regions in the New England Board of Higher Education, the Southern Regional Education Board, and the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education.
For those institutions in the MHEC region only that are unable to offer a school-sponsored plan, MHEC also provides an option with IXSolutions for private student health insurance exchanges. Through a private health insurance exchange, campuses can offer students multiple coverage options, provide support from insurance experts, and save valuable administrative time.
