NAPLES, Fla. -- A Catholic university in Florida decided Monday to drop its student health insurance plan over complications stemming from the federal health care overhaul, becoming the second school this month to make that move, FOXNews.com reported.The decision by Ave Maria University follows that of Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio. Both schools voiced moral and economic concerns with the health care law.
Officials were opposed to the so-called contraceptive coverage mandate -- but for both schools, premium costs associated with new coverage requirements appeared to fuel their anxiety.
Ave Maria University President James Towey told FOXNews.com in an email that school officials met Monday and decided to drop the student health plans. The university also will no longer require students to obtain health insurance.
