At Central State University, we value each and every employee. Our commitment to our staff is to provide an enriching environment where employees are engaged and proud to be part of the Central State family.

Solutions for you

The cost of healthcare and other benefits continues to rise year after year. We analyze costs and try to manage increases by reviewing our plans and benefit providers. We are conscious of the fact that changing health insurance plans is often difficult for our employees, so whenever possible, we work with our benefit providers to create solutions that will work financially and will be less disruptive. 

Employers across the country face the same challenge. But the fact is that 70% of healthcare costs are due to preventable conditions that cost the U.S. healthcare system about $100 billion every year. Smoking, obesity, and high blood pressure are all preventable or treatable conditions that, left untreated, can lead to such illnesses as cancer, type II diabetes, or heart failure. 

The University continues to promote a culture of health and wellness, establishing a work environment that promotes healthy lifestyles, decreases the risk of disease, and enhances the quality of life. 


Central State offers two medical plan options administered by United Healthcare. Through these plans, employees can access hundreds of thousands of network physicians and hospitals. For an in-network provider listing, visit

Upon enrollment, you will receive a Wellworks packet with all the forms and information you need.
