ACE Urges HHS to Publish Final Student Health Insurance Rules

March 05, 2012

 

ACE and a group of higher education associations sent a letter March 2 to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the White House, requesting HHS immediately issue the final version of the proposed rules for Student Health Insurance Coverage (SHIC).

The proposed SHIC rules were published in the Federal Register on Feb. 11, 2011, with comments due by April 12, 2011. More than a year after publication, the final version of these regulations has yet to be issued.

This delay is already causing problems for some campuses in their contract negotiations for student health insurance coverage for the 2012-13 academic year, the associations wrote. Further delay could negatively impact financial aid packages for incoming students, as future insurance costs are unknown.
