This is from Georgetown University's brochure for student health insurance. Has anyone heard anywhere about the fact that the students at the university have to buy their own insurance. FUCKING RUSH isn't paying the bill, each student pays for their own insurance, so FUCKING RUSH has no right to demand sex tapes if the insurance pays for contraceptives!!!!!!!!
Georgetown University requires students to have health insurance. Because so many students have difficulty obtaining comprehensive, affordable coverage on their own, the University has accepted the responsibility of obtaining an affordable plan for its students,
the Premier Plan. Students who are eligible for insurance in the fall are automatically charged for the Premier Plan. Students who already have coverage of at least $100,000 per Injury and per Sickness may waive the Premier Plan by supplying documentation of insurance coverage on a waiver form. The only way that we can ensure that students have insurance before the enrollment period ends on September 15 is by including the charge for insurance on the fall tuition bill of all eligible students and by requiring a waiver from those who already have coverage. Because the insurance charge is part of the tuition statement, students may use loans and scholarships to pay for it.
The University has worked with Gallagher Koster to develop a health insurance policy tailored to the health needs and financial capabilities of students. UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company
underwrites the Plan.
In this case the government isn't forcing Georgetown University to provide contraceptive coverage, just that the insurance policy that the university requires the students to buy does cover contraceptives.(For whatever medical reason they are prescribed, including preventing rugrats!!)
Why aren't the Reich-WingNuts and/or Tea-Baggers protesting the fact that the university is mandating every student buy insurance?????????????
