Ralph Manchester, director of University Health Service, says being able to make health benefits directly available to students lowers administrative and risk costs. "We think, based on experience with self-insured plans at schools in other states and the experience in New York State with employers that have already been able to offer self-insured plans, that it would result in lower health care costs to the student."
