In The News: Student Health Center and Faculty and Staff Treatment (FAST) Center
This year's 4 percent increase in undergraduate registration fees is a heckuva deal for UNLV students when compared with the cost of school-sponsored health insurance.
Students at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, (UNLV) are facing growing health insurance premiums. Those that receive coverage through the school’s Student Health Insurance Plan, which provides policies for undergraduates, may be facing rate shock, as premiums continue to climb significantly. Growing premiums are forcing some students to seek coverage through the state’s health insurance exchange, which is designed to serve as an alternative to conventional insurance markets, allowing consumers to find affordable coverage.
It's back-to-school time and, for some newly minted college freshmen, it's the first time they'll be managing their own health without a concerned parent hovering nearby.
