Students call for end to UC health insurance cap
San Francisco Chronicle

Students have called on the University of California to end caps on health care coverage that could leave them to foot the bill for their medical treatment. Most UC campuses limit students’ coverage to $400,000, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday. Students say that is not enough for illnesses such as cancer that require prolonged, expensive treatment. Thousands of students have joined a petition drive to end the caps.
