Student Health Insurance Information
Changes for 2014-2015
The previous student health insurance provider, AIG, informed the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) that its policy filing with the state Department of Commerce & Insurance was not approved and, therefore, AIG could not offer TBR a student health insurance plan. Due to fundamental changes brought to the market by various features of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and low levels of participation in our current student health insurance plan, TBR was unable to secure another vendor to sponsor an affordable domestic student health insurance plan.
To assist students searching for an insurance plan, a website where students can compare various health care exchange and marketplace options was created. The website includes information explaining the meaning of various terms, plans, and coverage types and presents plans that comply with the coverage requirements of the ACA offered through the ACA “exchange” as well as plans offered “off exchange.” Students may view a plan summary/brochure online and may also complete the plan enrollment process online.
The website address is: www.TBRstudentHIX.com
Advice concerning the website plans is available by phone at: 1.800.800.5735.
