Appeal to Nipissing University Health Plan
To whom it may concern;
We are writing you today to express our shock and dismay regarding the inflated cost of this school year's (17/18) Health Plan. Crucial "dependant" costs and information were withheld from the students prior to the Health Plan Referendum last school year (16/17). The "dependant" costs were not clearly and transparently revealed to the students, and therefore we were not provided with "informed consent". This being said, we the students, are petitioning for the removal of the "new" plan (17/18), and proposing to revert to the old plan (16/17). We the students feel that the cost of adding depends is unaffordable and unattainable with the new Health Plan. We are students... This extravagant plan does not suit the needs of your students, and as such we are petitioning for a fair and informed re-referendum and vote.
Current price breakdown (17/18)
In addition to the student cost of $225:
One dependent: $344.07
($225 + $344.07 = $569.07)
Two dependants: $556.77
($225 + $556.77 = $781.77)
Three dependants: $778.34
($225 + $778.34 = $1003.34)
($225 + $999.90 =$1224.90)
Note: The above pricing was not shown in any referendum information.
Prompt attention to this matter is appreciated.
