How to Save on College Health Plans

Shutterstock

As colleges upgrade their health plans to comply with the Affordable Care Act, some students (or their parents) may end up paying higher premiums.

New regulations require the phasing out of caps on benefits, coverage of certain “essential” services and the elimination of co-pays for preventive care, including contraceptives. To cover these extra costs, several colleges have raised the price of their health plans. Others, particularly smaller schools, are choosing to drop coverage altogether.

Even though the law doesn’t go fully into effect until 2014, some schools have already brought their plans into compliance. Cornell University, for example, this year raised premiums 5% – or $100 – for a plan with no limit on annual benefits or prescription drug coverage, and no co-pay for preventive care.  The University of New Hampshire, which made similar upgrades, raised premiums about 7%. However, school officials say the rate hike is similar to its typical annual increase.

College plans that already offered comprehensive benefits will keep rates fairly stable this year, while some schools whose plans had low coverage limits had to raise premiums by as much as 200%.

“There’s been a voluntary movement to have more plans in compliance,” says Cindy McGahey, director of finance and administration at the University of New Hampshire and head of the insurance benefits plans coalition at the American College Health Association. She expects most college plans to change as a result of the regulations and to increase premiums in line with the higher quality coverage, depending on how good the plan was to begin with.

But the higher prices also put a greater onus on students to know their options, since schools often require students to have some form of insurance, say experts. There’s an effort to “educate young people on how to be good consumers of health insurance, which is not something they always think about,” says Jenny Haubenreiser, president of the American College Health Association and director of health promotion at Montana State. The school plan is often the best deal, but she advises students to consider the alternatives: “If there’s a better deal, take it. We’re not in the business of health insurance here.”

STAY ON PARENTS’ PLAN

The Affordable Care Act allows students to stay on their parents’ plan until they’re 26, which has kept more than 3 million people between 19 and 25 insured as of June, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. And the cost of adding another member to the family plan is generally cheaper than purchasing an individual policy. But experts warn students to beware of their parents’ plans limitations — out-of-state students may find it hard to find in-network providers near their school, and need to weigh the cost of paying higher premiums to go outside the network against the convenience of receiving care near campus.

LOOK AT THE STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN

While new regulations ensure a higher level of quality for college insurance plans, how schools implement the provisions will vary – as will the prices of the plans.

Colleges are required to provide free preventive care, including birth control, but they might stipulate that students purchase generic drugs or use the university’s health services to receive full coverage. Experts advise students and their parents to study up on the new requirements and look closely at their college plan’s policy and how much it will cost.

OTHER OPTIONS

Students with jobs might be able to purchase a more affordable health plan through their employer. They could also buy individual health insurance, though experts warn that these plans will likely be the most expensive option until 2014, when health-care exchanges will create a commercial marketplace for insurance under the Affordable Care Act. Students may also be eligible for Medicaid coverage.

GETTING ADVICE

Students can usually get guidance about their health insurance options by approaching their campus insurance administrator or health services office. “There is almost always somebody who really gets this within the health service,” says Haubenreiser.

The young adult health-care advocacy organization Young Invincibles also provides  information about shopping for student plans and other insurance options.

      Free Facebook Icons That You Can Integrate To Your Website
      Posted by Guest on Feb 2, 2012 in Icons | 0 comments
      Due to the extreme popularity of Facebook, most, if not all, blogs and websites now use a Facebook icon on their page. Social networking sites are excellent marketing and advertising platforms that can help you effectively promote your website. And because of this, website and blog owners choose to link their official webpage to their Facebook profile or fan page. What’s great about doing this is that web traffic can be enjoyed for free, not to mention the fact that almost everyone, these days, has a profile on Facebook.
      When linking to Facebook, choosing an appealing icon is important. Good news is that there are now a lot of free icons for social media that are available online. Therefore, finding one that you should use in your site will never be a problem.
      Like when looking for an arrow icon, there are a lot of choices for icons for Facebook. This include the following:
      Regular Facebook IconВ  – This is the icon you often seen used when linking to facebook. You can place it anywhere on your web page, at the side bar, header or even right in the content page.
      Facebook DryIcon – If you want a unique icon to link your page to Facebook, then try the excellent icons from DryIcons. The icons available here come with a foldover corner style assuming a circular shape.
      Icontexto Facebook Icon – This icon set showcases an impressive broken style. The icon looks as if it was intentionally shattered to reveal the Facebook icon in it. This is the perfect choice for those who want to add a unique icon that is a far cry from the boring icons commonly used in many blogs. Placing this icon, though, can a bit of tricky so you have to plan carefully where the icon should sit on your page.

    • Thanks for your hard work and dedication on FT and all other prejocts you are trying to take on now and in the future. I hope to be able to watch quality subs from you in the future also.

    • Quote from CompEng: “Are you talking about a world wotuiht government?”Ah yes, the predictable false dichotomy argument. Are you talking about a world where everything is controlled and decided by government? I’m just trying to get a gauge here on your paradigm.Are you so afraid of people having the liberty to make their own decisions (and taking responsibility for the consequences) that you’re willing to rob, imprison and murder them to keep them from exercising it? Everything the government does is predicated by the threat ‘or we’ll kill you’. Pay higher wages ‘or we’ll kill you’. Charge lower rent ‘or we’ll kill you’. Only trade with these people and not with those people ‘or we’ll kill you’.Anybody so enamored with government to think that it can solve so many problems is really just enamored with using whatever coercive force they wish to make other people do what they want. How very progressive.

    • Wait a minute! We were promised that Obamacare would REDUCE health insurance costs. Surely it cannot be true that meeting Obamacare requirements is RAISING health insurance costs. That would mean that our president and his party lied to us–or at a minimum did not have a clue what they were doing.

      At least 45 percent of us know that cannot be the case, because we already have decided to vote for his reelection. So even if the facts here are true, we don’t want to know! We prefer being ignorant of facts and hence possessing full confidence in our nation’s current leaders.
