Chancellor Robert Birgeneau called for the elimination of coverage caps in UC SHIP, in a letter dated Mar. 13.

In the letter addressed to members of the UC SHIP Advisory Board and the UC SHIP Executive Committee, Birgeneau said he agreed with the vast majority of students in believing that UC SHIP should comply with how benefit caps are dealt with in the Affordable Care Act.

The UC SHIP Advisory Board met on Monday to discuss lifting coverage caps, but refrained from making a decision until they had heard more from student groups.
