Boise State University Selects Pacificsource Health Plans to Provide Health Insurance to Graduate Assistants

(BOISE, Idaho) — Citing a desire to partner with a local company that offers competitive pricing, Boise State University has chosen PacificSource Health Plans to provide health insurance to the school’s graduate assistants and their dependents for the 2015-2016 school year.

“Boise State is proud to partner with PacificSource to provide high-quality health insurance for our graduate assistants,” said Alicia Shier Estey, executive director of Intuitional Compliance for Boise State. “Their competitive pricing, local presence, strong ties to community providers, and understanding of the needs of our graduate assistants made PacificSource the obvious choice.”

Since going into effect on the first day of fall term, nearly 400 graduate assistants have enrolled in the plan, which includes both medical and prescription benefits as well as COBRA administration.

“The value that PacificSource brings to Bronco Nation is our ability to be a local partner to them in every sense of the word,” said Josh Bishop, Vice President and Idaho Regional Director for PacificSource. “Being local allows us to provide the most appropriate plans and coverage, and respond to the specific needs of Boise State graduate assistants.”
