Plan’s cost likely to
stay constant next year
by jen serdetchnaia
assistant state & national editor
Because so many students chose the new
insurance plan offered by the UNC system, the
cost of the plan is likely to stay constant.
At the end of the process to appeal the auto-
matic Pearce & Pearce coverage last Thursday,
7,041 students at UNC-CH were enrolled —
about 26 percent, said Dr. Mary Covington,
executive director for UNC Campus Health
Services.
The University had guessed about 10
percent of the campus might be uninsured,
Covington said.
“But it seems a lot of people chose to get on
the policy,” she said.
The enrollment rate across the whole sys-
tem was not a surprise, system administrators
said.
Across the UNC system, 55,118 signed up
for the Pearce & Pearce insurance plan, which
is about 29 percent.
“The number of students who ultimately
enrolled was consistent with expectations,”
said Joni Worthington, spokeswoman for the
UNC system.
If not enough students had signed up for
the $361.50-a-semester plan, Pearce & Pearce
and not the UNC system would have lost
money.
Based on the initial enrollment numbers,
this should not be a problem, Covington
said.
“We went into this with no expecta-
tions because we’ve never done this before,”
Covington said.
If the number of students enrolled had
