Colleges and universities offering health care coverage to students through the end of 2013 will be able to provide lower annual dollar limits in plans than other organizations, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said.

In its final rule, released March 16, CMS said student health insurance policies must provide annual coverage limits for essential benefits of at least $500,000 for policy years beginning on or after Sept. 23, 2012, but before Jan. 1, 2014.
