Providing health benefits to more than 5600 graduate and undergraduate students and their dependents, Princeton University‘s self-insured Student Health Plan (SHP) and group health dental and vision plans are critical components of the University’s approach to promoting the health and wellbeing of its student population, working in partnership with other services provided directly by the University Health Services organization. The University provides significant support to the cost of the SHP and group health plans through the direct support of the dependent SPH fees, a 50% subsidy of the group health plan fees and through the generous financial aid that helps graduate and undergraduate students pay for their SHP fees.
Given the continuing growth in the size, complexity, and importance of our self-insured Student Health Plan and Group Health Plans, Princeton University has created a new position of Associate Director of Student Health Plans to coordinate all aspects of plan administration and to communicate all of the benefits of the Plans to campus constituencies. Under the aegis of the Vice President for Campus Life, the Associate Director will manage an existing team of three administrators in University Health Services and work closely with colleagues in the University’s Office of Finance and Treasury, the Provost’s Office, the Graduate School, the Undergraduate College and other partners in administering the Plans.
The successful candidate will:
Provide oversight to and management of all operational aspects of the Student Health Plan and Group Dental and Vision Plans including managing and overseeing the SHP Office and its staff. Provide staff support to the various SHP governance committees and working groups. Lead key projects with key stakeholders including students, as new programs or services are developed or as existing programs or services evolve. In coordination with other University departments, provide management of all plan vendors and service providers and related contracts and agreements. Use health plan analytics and periodic student survey data to assist governance in decision making around Plan benefits and design. Monitor industry trends and regulatory standards through regular engagement with national and higher education groups, state and federal governments and vendors on matters relating to the student health plans in order to ensure compliance with all regulatory requirements, with special emphasis on ACA certification and CMS requirements. Oversee the development and dissemination of all materials, brochures, and plan documents to the SHP website.
