Healthcare petition

April 24, 2012
The Daily Mining Gazette

To the editor:

Michigan Technological University requires students to have insurance coverage. Did you know the student health insurance offered by Michigan Tech covers pregnancy-related costs and abortion services, but not birth control consultations? The plan also covers part of the cost for birth control pills, but not other forms of contraception, such as the patch, or IUDs. Even some lab fees for annual exams aren't covered under the current plan. What's worse, having the plan excludes students from being eligible for state services such as Medicaid. Tell Michigan Tech women's health issues matter by liking our Facebook page and signing the petition:

You can also contact the president of the University, Dr. Glenn D.Mroz, directly at Room 500A, Administration Building, 487-2200, Fax: 487-2935,
