Mission Statement
Participating Districts

The State-Wide Schools Cooperative Health Plan is administered by WESCO, a division of Wright Risk Management Company, in conjunction with Systemed, LLC, a subsidary of Medco Health Solutions, Inc. and Alicare, the hospital and medical claims administrator.

Certain provisions of the SWSCHP Plan may be modified by your particular Participating Employer. Examples of these types of variable provisions are:

  • The definition of "Employee," which guides your right to eligibility for participation in the Plan;
  • The definition of "Waiting Period," which specifies how soon after your employment starts you may participate in the Plan; and
  • The contributions (the amount per month or pay period) required, if any, toward the cost of your coverage.

Contact your own Participating Employer's Health Benefits Representative for specific information regarding your Participating Employer's policy.

The State-Wide Schools Cooperative Health Plan is not a licensed insurer. It operates under a more limited certificate of authority granted by the Superintendent of Insurance. Municipal corporations participating in the Municipal Cooperative Health Benefit Plan are subject to contingent assessment liability.
