Recognizing the tremendous benefits to be realized through the group purchase of insurance, Ohio established the Inter-University Council Insurance Consortium (IUC-IC) that includes fourteen of the fifteen state colleges and universities. Three committees handle the overall administrative functions of the IUC. Wright State University is one of the participating universities involved with this cost saving consortium.
Goals and Objectives
The goal of the IUC-IC is to improve the coverage and service provided to each university, while permitting the group to assume additional risk by taking an increased primary deductible retention. The assumption of this risk translates into overall cost savings. The IUC-IC's objective is to take advantage of the economies of scale of making a group purchase of insurance.
Group Purchase Benefits
While each university retains control over its insurance program, this group purchase program reduces the impact of underwriting, pricing, servicing, and coverage limitations on the individual schools by creating market clout.
