Second Catholic College May Drop Student Health Insurance Because of Obamacare

Ava Maria University is considering whether to drop heath care insurance for students.  And the problem is not only the HHS Obamacare mandate for contraception.
University officials plan to meet Monday to discuss their insurance options and potentially make a decision.
Towey said the school’s insurance provider told them that students would be looking at a premium increase ranging from 65 to 82 percent in the coming year if no changes are made.
“At a minimum, we’ve got to communicate to students on why they’re going to see a huge spike in insurance,” Towey said. He added, though, “we just might get out of this business.”
But . . . but I thought Obamacare was supposed to get healthcare costs under control.
