Health Care Information and Updates

The University of Northern Iowa has a self-insured health care plan, administered by Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield. Being self-insured means that we must bring in sufficient revenues to cover our expenditures and that each of our plans must remain solvent. We also must hold a certain amount in reserves for unexpectedly large claims.
Each year we track revenues and expenditures and make adjustments to individual plans to maintain their solvency. In Fall of 2017, data from the past three fiscal years for each health plan and for our dental plans has been presented to Faculty Senate and they encouraged a broader dissemination of the information and regular updates. We will add information to this page when we send updates out to the university community.
