Do College Students Need The Campus Health Plan?
from The New York Times
If you're packing a child off to college this summer, the extra-long sheets and shower caddies can wait. Health insurance should be at the top of your to-do list. Many private colleges and public universities require full-time residential students to have health insurance, and some aggressively market their own plans, automatically enrolling incoming students in their insurance plan and adding the premium — which can be several thousand dollars a year — to the tuition bill. If you don't need it and want to get the charge removed, you must meet the college's early and often rather arbitrary deadline for proving your child is adequately insured and obtaining a waiver.
