Student Opinion on Health Insurance: Needs, Preferences and Evaluation. Student Affairs Quarterly Survey, Autumn, 1976.
Randomly selected students (932) at the University of Washington completed a questionnaire on health insurance needs and preferences during the autumn quarter, 1976. The primary reason given for rejecting the university's plan was the possession of other coverage. Subscribers to the university plan did not differ from non-subscribers in most respects, although their rating of the plan was somewhat lower than the nonsubscribers' evaluations of their coverage. Among all respondents, there was close correspondence between the opinions of men and women. Students identified several desired services that are not now offered, and rejected proposals for maternity benefits and a mandatory health fee for expanded services at the health center. The questionnaire is included in the report. (Author/MSE)
