The house has approved a senate bill some lawmakers say could lower student health insurance costs. Senate bill 280 would authorize the Commissioner of Higher Education to create a self-insured healthcare plan for students. Representative Daniel Salomon of Ronan says this would allow the Montana University system to offer students a health care option using its own funds rather than going through a private insurance company.
