College health plans taking off

And not in a good way. We've long noted that these plans are mediocre (at best) and overpriced to boot. Now comes word from FoIB Jeff M that another college is set to bring its premiums in line with the train-wreck's requirements:
"Guilford College in North Carolina is poised to raise the prices they charge students for health insurance by 75 percent as a direct result of the implementation of [ObamaCare] ... There is no reason why it has gone up except the requirements of the new law have forced it to go up. That is the whole story.”
Of course, some (many?) students will be eligible to stay on their folks' health plan (assuming they have one), but this is just another example of how the promise of lower premiums was never realistic.
