We have heard from a number of people regarding surprising increased prescription costs, loss of coverage for specific medications, or increases in costs for dependent health insurance since the plan change on August 1. These changes will result in annual increases of hundreds of dollars, despite a promise made by Dean Meng when informing GSAS students of next year’s reduced pay increase: “There will be no reductions to any current student benefits, including health insurance.”  We are collecting information about the severity of the situation for student workers— please use this form to share your story.
