Abstract

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA or ACA) has brought many changes to the U.S healthcare system. It has also affected the way higher education institutions provide healthcare coverage to their students. This article focuses on the cost of health insurance premiums in four-year degree-granting public Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and explores how the ACA affects college students. Most institutions do not offer health insurance as part of college tuition and fees anymore. Premium costs varied from one HBCU to another based on the state where it is located, the state’s decision towards Medicaid expansion, and the type of Health Insurance Marketplace. 

Keywords: Health Insurance, Student, Care, HBCUS
