ACHA remains steadfast in its advocacy efforts to ensure that college students have access to comprehensive health insurance and it will continue working in connection with the implementation of the ACA to advance high quality college student coverage. The Association will continue monitoring developments on other issues related to ACA implementation that affect students’ option for choice including any further changes to: rules on establishment of state exchanges and Qualified Health Plans; the elements of the Essential Health Benefits coverage package; opportunities to facilitate increased use of Medicaid funds to purchase student health insurance coverage for low-income students; and, the status of self-funded SHBPs under the ACA.
