Bestcollegesonline.com posted an infographic this week about how students can stay healthy while in college. It is vital that all students have health insurance. Many student health centers are now offering their own student insurance plans for those than are not insured. Billing commercial insurance carriers is becoming a more common trend in college health. Many student health centers and student affairs professionals recognize the potential for increased profitability and incremental revenue that would come with a transition to a commercial insurance billing model, but are concerned about the effort and risk involved. With Nuesoft’s Insurance Billing Services, health centers can easily outsource their billing while still providing their own student insurance plans. Presented By: BestCollegesOnline.com

Technology and health care are close partners. As technology advances, more and more sophisticated tools are created that effectively help improve the quality of people’s lives, whether by helping to diagnose illnesses sooner or treat health problems in a less invasive way. A few examples from the last 20 years: laser eye surgery, drug-eluting stents, blood glucose monitors — and Facebook. Yes, Facebook. With all of the impressive advances in medical tools, it’s easy to forget that communication also plays a big part in health care. Letting the community know what services you provide, how to stay healthy (presented in a non-didactic way), and even answering general health questions can all be achieved more effectively — especially on campus — [cont...]
There has been a growing trend among college health centers toward offering student health insurance plans. With budgets being cut and costs continually rising, health centers are trying to find new ways to bring in revenue. According to the results by the United States Government Accountability Office, about 20 percent of college students aged 18 through 23 were uninsured in 2006. It may seem, then, as through mandatory student insurance plans would be a boon for both students and administration alike, however, an article in The Capital Times reveals that many students are unwittingly left underinsured by taking the university endorsed policy. Some college-offered insurance programs offer low ceilings at $30,000 and “interior caps” on surgery and hospital stays. Many [cont...]
