First published Thursday, July 21, 2016
The University awarded a contract for student health insurance management firm.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
University Managed Care and a committee including University Hospital and Physicians Group has selected the Blue Cross/Blue Shield approved management service provider, Innovista, LLC to provide student insurance services.

The emergency procurement is necessary to ensure both programs have the ability to adjudicate claims accurately, continue to have timely and accurate payments to providers on behalf of our CampusCare and BCBS HMO members and provide quality customer service to the members for which we serve. Failure to enter into this emergency purchase could result in delayed or no payment to providers, poor customer service, possible delay in medical care, loss of membership, reduction in revenue and ultimately it could result in termination of the BCBS agreement (~21 Million annual revenue).
