For students who get health insurance through their colleges, new rules will provide more favorable terms. As noted in the following article by Consumer Reports; starting in the 2012/13 academic year, college health plans will be required to offer an annual cap of at least $100,000, versus the current $25,000 or less that many currently offer. In the next year, the plans will be required to lift the cap completely.
In the following year, the plans must lift the cap completely. In addition, such plans will no longer be permitted to establish annual limits on doctor visits, lab work, ER visits, and prescription coverage. These new rules are expected to affect over a million college students who don’t access health insurance through their parents or are 26 years old or above. If your college student needs student health insurance, find quotes easily on the internet.
