FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Boston Consortium for Higher Education, Inc., Newton, MA. Announces the Launch of New Captive Insurance Cells

[June 20, 2024] —

The Boston Consortium for Higher Education, Inc. (TBC) partnered with edHEALTH, a medical stop loss captive for educational institutions, to explore opportunities for cost containment in other lines of insurance coverage. Thanks to a grant from the Davis Educational Foundationestablished by Stanton and Elisabeth Davis after Mr. Davis’s retirement as chairman of Shaw’s Supermarkets, Inc., TBC and edHEALTH members spent more than two years reviewing the risks, rewards, actuarial analysis and captive insurance structures. The collaboration led to the creation of edRISK, a sponsored cell captive insurance company domiciled in Vermont, and new captive insurance cells edLIABILITY and edPROPERTY. edRISK, which now includes the edHEALTH, edLIABILITY, and edPROPERTY cells, is a member-owned and governed organization.

edLIABILITY launched with seven members.  The cell offers retention reimbursement agreements for general liability and educators legal liability insurance.

edPROPERTY launched with eight members.  The cell offers deductible reimbursement agreements for property insurance.

As higher education navigates an increasingly complex risk landscape, TBC and edRISK stand ready to facilitate and develop innovative solutions to better manage the total cost of risk for their member institutions. The launch of these cells positions its members to take a strategic approach to risk management and risk transfer, making its members less reliant on traditional insurance risk transfer. Membership in these Cells is expected to grow significantly in the early years and generate long-term savings for its member-owners.

For more information about TBC or edRISK and its three insurance cells, please contact Kitty Kennedy, Executive Director of TBC at kkennedy@boston-consortium.org or Tracy Hassett, President of edRISK at athassett@edrisk.org.
