The article discusses double-digit increases in student health insurance premiums at New York University (NYU), Columbia, and the City University of New York (CUNY). NYU students face a 33% hike while Columbia students look to 11% rise in basic health plan costs aside from health services fees close to 1,000 U.S. dollars, as both schools require mandated purchase of health care. It notes that CUNY does not require the purchase of health insurance and that students pay nearly twice as much.
