To the students and parents of Morehouse College:

In our continued effort to promote good health among our students, and assist students in meeting Healthcare Reform Mandates, as well as keep costs at a competitive level, Morehouse College reviewed several options for the 2017-2018 plan year, to begin on August 1, 2017.
