Campus Reform: Students at Bowie State University assailed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on Thursday after administrators cancelled a low cost school-wide health care plan due to new regulations in the law. Many students told Campus Reform that the now cancelled plans, which provided coverage for just $50 per semester, were the only insurance they could afford.
Several students said that they felt they had been let down.
Many students had no idea the plans had been canceled, which was announced only in an email to their school addresses.
In a statement to Campus Reform, Bowie State said it was confident that Obamacare would fill the void left by the canceled plans.
Campus Reform conducted the interviews with student Eugene Craig III, who first wrote about canceled plans in an article in the school’s alternative newspaper, The Bulldog Collegian.
