Florida Universities Considering Health Consortium

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- The Board of Governors is considering a recommendation to form a purchasing consortium for health care insurance covering students at Florida's state universities.

The board, which oversees the 11-school State University System, is scheduled to take up the proposal Wednesday. A committee appointed to examine health care insurance has recommended such a consortium as an efficient way to provide coverage for students if Congress should pass reform legislation. By joining together the schools should be able to get better rates. The consortium also could be expanded to include state and community colleges.

Only one school, Florida State University, currently requires all students to have health insurance.
