Oh bummer

Post  fshnski on Mon Sep 02, 2013 12:30 pm

Students at UC Berkeley were shocked to learn that the student health insurance plan doesn’t cover injuries received during riot participation.

According to The Daily Californian, the Berkeley student newspaper, the news also shocked Bahar Navab, the university’s assembly affairs vice president.

It turns out the riot rule, included in the plan’s benefits, was mistakenly included when the campus signed a contract this summer with Aetna, its new health insurance carrier.

The clause, reportedly printed in the school’s most recent benefits booklet, excludes coverage for “expense incurred as a result of injury due to participation in a riot.”
