UnitedHealthcare Student Resources has been providing customized student insurance plans to colleges and universities for over 40 years and is happy to extend a discounted program to GICA institutions through their relationship with The Coalition for College Cost Savings. This student insurance program provides year-round coverage to over 390,000 college students in over 450 colleges and universities. UnitedHealthcare serves hundreds of thousands of insured students and their dependents every plan year. These insureds are a diverse mix of domestic, international, graduate and undergraduate students. Most benefit from UnitedHealthcare’s strong provider network that is national in scope, but local in focus.
College and university clients streamline the management of their student insurance programs by using the online tools available in Partner Center. Online waiver, enrollment, ledger billing, referral and eligibility access increase productivity and reduce errors for school administrators tasked with managing complex student insurance programs.
Despite massive changes brought about by healthcare reform, the basics remain: students need to stay healthy. First Risk Advisors (FRA) and UnitedHealthcare Student Resources offers GICA member schools ACA compliant, affordable student insurance plans that can help protect students’ health as they pursue their educational goals. FRA has been helping schools help their students for over 25 years. As a full service student health partner, FRA guides every step of the process, from policy development to enrollment and customer service. UnitedHealthcare is a leader in providing student insurance plans, serving over 400 colleges and universities every policy year.
More affordable than most exchange or employee dependent insurance, student insurance plans offer a variety of plan designs that can be customized according to need (within the parameters of ACA and underwriting guidelines) and can integrate with and reimburse student Health Centers on a claim by claim or ledger billing basis. All plans include benefits developed specifically for students:
- Health Advocate
- UnitedHealth Allies discount card
- 24/7 Student Assistance Program
- 24/7 Telehealth
- Global emergency medical assistance
- Intramural and club sports
