The principles we commit to


Through our purchasing clout, we consistently negotiate lower costs with less volatility than schools can realize on their own. Person-centric clinical health initiatives help us improve quality of care and reduce costs for the employees who need it most. Our results show that our innovative approach is working. The bottom line — employee satisfaction, high quality of care, and valuable savings you can pass along to students and families.


edHEALTH is a member-owned consortium run by and for its educational institutions. As a member, you share in the savings generated by the group. Member-owners control and have a meaningful say in the decision-making process. You'll enjoy direct access to plan administrators and multiple forums for sharing and learning from one another. Ask any of our members and they’ll tell you — collaboration is a key benefit of belonging to edHEALTH.


Health insurance works when employers have the data they need to make informed decisions. edHEALTH’s transparent approach means member educational institutions are apprised of all rate components. And, our collaborative approach enables colleges and universities to compare cost utilization, trends, and best practices with other member schools.


edHEALTH is the innovative healthcare solution for higher education institutions and secondary schools along with their faculty, staff, and family members. Our self-insured healthcare offerings are tailored to meet the needs of our members. Through data analysis, groundbreaking programs, and decision support, we help educational institutions select programs that meet their needs while containing rising healthcare costs.
