As you have no doubt heard, the Affordable Care Act’s deadline for all United States Citizens to carry ACA-qualified health insurance is January 1, 2014. For many families, employer provided health insurance options have changed this year. Some employers are narrowing networks, increasing deductibles, shifting more of the cost of healthcare to employees, and requiring spouses to be insured under their own employer plan, if eligible.
If you find that changes to your current employer’s plan have made insuring your student costly, you can sign your student up for the student insurance plan sponsored by Carroll University. Carroll participates in the Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities Student Health Insurance Program (WSHIP). WSHIP provides students with many advantages – Carroll students are pooled with students from many other Wisconsin private non-profit colleges, allowing WSHIP to provide ACA-qualified insurance options with a broader network, more comprehensive coverage, and at a lower cost than most students would be able to obtain on their own.
Please note the plan is only available to students enrolled for 6 or more credits.
