GSS discusses Affordable Care Act

Employees from the Student Insurance Office discussed the Affordable Care Act’s upcoming changes to health insurance at the last Graduate Student Senate general meeting of the semester Friday afternoon.

Tammy Ford, student insurance representative for the Student Insurance Office, said students should prepare for the changes by visiting and reviewing the insurance plan options before the changes take place Jan. 1.

Ohio has five plans: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Catastrophic.

The premiums for the plans range anywhere from $200 to $450 a month, she said.

Out of state students should check the insurance options for their states at, she said.

Ford said the University student health insurance plan through United Health will continue to meet minimum requirements so users will not have to pay a penalty.

Students enrolled in the student plan can waive for the spring semester but must do so before Dec. 15, she said.

A series of forums will be hosted in January for students to ask questions. Students can contact the Student Insurance Office at 419-372-7495 for more information about the changes.

The next GSS meeting will be Jan. 24 in the McFall Gallery from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
