Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) February 04, 2016
The Midwestern Higher Education Compact (MHEC) announced today its agreement with Consolidated Health Plans, who through MHEC’s student health collaborative MHECare, will provide expanded student health insurance options for institutions nationally. MHECare helps institutions support the student learning experience by providing protection from unexpected medical expenses.
Student access to affordable healthcare coverage is closely aligned with MHEC’s mission. MHEC sponsors a variety of programs to reduce costs and increase student access to college. “We want to make sure that every student on MHEC campuses can have access to health insurance,” said Larry Isaak, president of MHEC. “CHP is committed to providing our campuses personalized services by being accessible, responsive, and flexible.”
CHP offers eligible institutions access to multiple national PPO network options, A rated insurance carriers, and experienced customer service and claims administration. Campuses and students will also have an online portal and mobile app to track claims, download ID cards, and search for nearby providers.
The CHP MHECare plans will be available exclusively through MHECare with CHP providing administrative services. MHECare campuses will also have dedicated CHP client service personnel familiar with their organization. In addition each institution is supported by an individual account manager, claims examiner, and enrollment specialist.
“We are excited to be able to provide MHEC institutions with access to CHP,” said Drew DiGiorgio, president of CHP. “With over 23 years of experience in the student health business, CHP is committed to supporting student success through superior insurance solutions.”
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).
Consolidated Health Plans, Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway company, has been a leading administrator of student health plans for over 21 years. By being accessible, responsive, and flexible, we are able to provide our clients with superior health insurance and services.
