Obamacare Loophole Puts Caps on Some Student Health Insurance

Obamacare was supposed to end lifetime caps on insurance payments, but a loophole is allowing some universities that administer a self-funded insurance plan to place lifetime caps on care. University of California student Micha Rahder is learning this the hard way as she has been cut off from the insurance plan that allows her to receive medication she needs to walk. She is afflicted with a rare neurological disorder that causes chronic demyelination of her nerves.

Colleges that offer this type of insurance and in fact require students to have insurance are located largely in the Ivy League and in the University of California educational system.
