KCAI Alumni Insurance Benefits Program

KCAI sponsors an Alumni Benefits Program as a service to alumni. The program offers a variety of attractively-priced insurance products, most of which are available to alumni, students, faculty, and staff, as well as their spouses, domestic partners, children, parents, and siblings:

*Traditional Health insurance (medical, dental, vision) is only available through Small Business Insurance

**Individual health coverage can also be placed in select states only.

***Individual ACA-compliant healthcare coverage is available in a limited number of states, excluding MO. Please call 800-635-7801 for additional information.

For more information visit https://kcai.meyerandassoc.com/ or contact our program administrator (Meyer and Associates) at 800-635-7801.

This is not a promotional or fundraising tool -- M&A insurance is completely independent from the college and simply a way to provide important benefits, at reasonable rates, for our alumni community. Please look for more information in your inbox and mailbox soon.
