Health Plans Faulted for Inattention to College Students

Health Plans Faulted for Inattention to College Students
October 12, 2009

A nonpartisan group of student health experts issued a statement Saturday warning that none of the major proposals under consideration in Congress to reform health care explicitly considers the needs of college students. The organization, the Lookout Mountain Group, cited two major issues. It said that the plans to date do not define "group insurance" to specifically include health insurance sponsored by colleges and universities for their students, and that the various pieces of legislation do not authorize colleges to continue to collect college fees or to use tuition dollars to fund health care for students.
