Oct. 12: WSU leaders, grad students discuss health insurance

grad-health-insurancePULLMAN, Wash. – Strategies to maintain health insurance coverage for graduate students will be discussed with administrators at a town hall hosted by the Graduate and Professional Student Association 5-6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12, in CUE 419.

U.S. government agencies in the past year have issued notice that, under the Affordable Care Act, universities could no longer provide subsidized student health insurance plans (SHIPs) after 2016-17.

GPSA and Washington State University administration are advocating at the federal level to have this guidance overturned. In the event this does not occur, GPSA is urging WSU administration to find a way to continue offering health insurance to graduate students.
