Some colleges and universities in Ohio are altering or discontinuing student health care plans in order to comply with the Affordable Care Act. Many of the schools' former plans had annual or lifetime benefit caps or excluded pre-existing conditions, which are practices the ACA forbids. Some institutions, such as Ohio State and Ohio Wesleyan universities, discontinued the caps. Miami University scrapped its basic health plan but still offers a more-comprehensive plan, which has increased in price by $33 a year, for students.
