TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- A legislative report says Florida's public university students would benefit in several ways if they were required to have health insurance. But that also would raise the cost of going to school for students who don't already have insurance by 5 to 7 percent. University officials, though, say that cost would be covered by financial aid for those students who qualify.
The Legislature's Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability released the report Friday. Florida State University currently is alone among the 11 state universities in requiring new students to either have their own health insurance -- often on their parents' policies -- or obtain it from the school.
