The principles we commit to


Through our purchasing clout, we consistently negotiate lower fees with less volatility than the skyrocketing healthcare cost trends experienced across the industry. Best of all -- member educational institutions share in the savings. The result: employee satisfaction, high quality of care, and valuable savings you can pass along to students and families.


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


edHEALTH is a member-owned consortium run by and for its member institutions. Member owners share and learn 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 are in the know. edHEALTH’s transparent approach means member higher education institutions are fully informed about all rate components. Members enjoy direct access to plan administrators. And, our collaborative approach enables colleges and universities to compare cost utilization, trends, and best practices with other member schools.

edHEALTH is growing in numbers and expanding its services

Northeast-based, the edHEALTH Captive is adding new member institutions every year and is now poised to expand across the country. With multiple healthcare plan design configurations, pooled stop-loss insurance, and regional and national Third-Party Administrators (TPAs), member/owner colleges, universities, private and charter schools have an array of choices to meet their unique needs. Targeted population health initiatives help us improve quality of care and reduce costs. And, strategic initiatives help our higher education institutions be proactive to the ever-evolving healthcare market.
