At least that’s what the University of Minnesota’s director Ed Ehlinger is saying. Each year, Ehlinger and his staff survey the stat’s college students to see how academic performance is affected by lifestyle factors. After the survey, they concluded that students with health insurance get better grades.
Although Ehlinger can not pin point the cause and effect of the results, he believes the link is strong enough that colleges should required health coverage if they are looking to improve academic achievement.
The University of Minnesota currently requires health coverage but certain schools around the country currently do not.
