About 57% of U.S. colleges offer student insurance plans.
Researchers at the U.S. Government Accountability Office have published that figure in a review of the state of college health insurance plans.
About 20% of college students are uninsured, 6% have Medicaid coverage or other public coverage, and 67% are members of employer-sponsored group plans, John Dicken, a GAO director, writes in a letter describing the GAO’s findings.
About 7% of college students have student insurance coverage or other private, non-group coverage, Dicken writes.
Annual premiums for the college plans range from $30 to $2,400, and maximum benefits range from $2,500 for each illness or injury to unlimited coverage, Dicken writes.
