Another Catholic Colleges Drops Its Student Insurance Plan And Blames Obamacare

Ave Maria University, a Catholic college in Florida, plans to drop its student health insurance plan because of “moral and economic concerns,” and officials are blaming the Obama administration’s contraception rule and the Affordable Care Act. University President James Towey said students would see premiums job 65 to 82 percent because of Obamacare requirements restricting annual limits on insurance policies. Because of the cost increase and contraception coverage requirement, Towey told Fox News that “we just might get out of this business.” In Februay, Ave Maria University filed a lawsuit claiming the contraception coverage mandate violated the college’s religious liberties, despite the fact that the regulation offers accommodations to religious institutions so that they do not have to pay for contraception.
