The Daily Californian

The University of California has adopted a systemwide student health insurance plan aimed at reducing student coverage fees, providing a dependent plan option for spouses and children and giving students more pharmaceutical and treatment benefits.

By grouping students into one plan, the university can negotiate lower rates with insurance vendors. The plan, which will go into effect Aug. 15, will accommodate approximately 130,000 students at all 10 UC campuses.
