Maggie Hernandez adasowa chochita atapita kukatenga mankhwala a matenda osatha ndipo adauzidwa kuti inshuwaransi yake yaumoyo sinagwire ntchito.

Pamene akumaliza maphunziro ake omaliza maphunziro ku Miami, Hernandez (wophunzira maphunziro a Anthropology) sanathe kulandira mankhwala ake ku University Health Services tsiku limene anazindikira kuti sakanatha kulipeza kudzera mu Inshuwalansi ya Zaumoyo ya Ophunzira pa August 22nd.

Kuti zinthu ziipireipire, Hernandez adatenga kachilombo ka coronavirus panthawiyi.

“Ndinali ndi mantha, sichoncho? Ndinali ndi COVID – mankhwala adandithera chifukwa cha matenda omwe ndinali nawo, ndipo ndidakhala wopanda mphamvu.” Hernandez anatero. “Ndimangodutsa zala zanga ndipo ndikukhulupirira kuti COVID yanga sikukula; pali zovuta zambiri kuti ndiyambe chaka chasukulu.”

Pali “kagulu kakang’ono ka ophunzira omaliza maphunziro a semester ya kugwa kwa 2022 omwe akuchedwa mosayembekezereka,” a Karen Klein, mkulu wa inshuwaransi yaumoyo ya ophunzira ku University Health Services, adatero kudzera pa imelo.

Malinga ndi Klein, “Kuchedwa kosayembekezereka kwa kagulu kakang’ono ka ntchito za ophunzira sikuli pansi pa ulamuliro wa ophunzira.”

SHIP ndi ndondomeko ya inshuwalansi ya umoyo yomwe imaperekedwa kudzera mwa First Risk Advisors, yomwe ili ndi inshuwaransi ndi UnitedHealthcare Student Resources ku Penn State, malinga ndi webusaiti yake.

“Ophunzira ayenera kumaliza cheke chakumbuyo ndi njira zina kuti atsimikizire kuti ntchitoyi ikupita patsogolo,” adatero Klein. “Ophunzira sangathe kulamulira pamene apereka gawo lawo.”

Atafunsidwa za zomwe ananena, a Will Holman, yemwe ndi mkulu wa zolumikizirana ku UnitedHealthcare, adati kudzera pa imelo, “Ndikumvetsa kuti Penn State yafikira [The Daily Collegian] Ndipo kuti vutoli lathetsedwa. “

Posakhalitsa, mawu adafalikira kuti ophunzira angapo omaliza maphunzirowo anali ndi vuto lomwelo – ena adakakamizika kulipira zolembera kapena zolembetsa kuti azibwezeredwa kwa madokotala kuti abwezedwe pambuyo pake, zomwe sizinali zosankha kwa ena omwe sakanatha kulipira nthawi yomweyo .

Ophunzira ena anadikirira kwa mlungu umodzi kuti alandire malangizo, pamene ena anafunika kusintha nthawi yoonana ndi dokotala.

Billy Campbell atamva za izi, ndinayang’ana ndi wothandizira yemwe adatsimikizira kuti, monga Campbell (womaliza maphunziro a uinjiniya wamagetsi) amawopa, nkhani zake zidalembedwa ngati “zopanda pake” m’dongosolo.

“Palibe wophunzira womaliza adachenjeza za izi, ndiye tikuyenera kuganiza chiyani?” Campbell anatero. “Timangopita kwa wothandizirayo ndipo timauzidwa kuti tilibe inshuwalansi.”

“Palibe wothandizira omaliza maphunziro, womaliza maphunziro, kapena womaliza maphunziro omwe adzawonekere ngati adayambitsa inshuwaransi yazaumoyo mpaka atamaliza kulemba,” adatero Klein.

Ichi ndichifukwa chake madokotala awo adauza ena mwa ophunzira omwe adakhudzidwa kuti alibe inshuwaransi panthawiyi.

Kwa wothandizira omaliza maphunziro Olivia Reed, vutoli linamupangitsa kuti asalandire chithandizo chamankhwala chaching’alang’ala chomwe dokotala adamulamula mu July.

Dokotala wake atatumiza apilo kuti akalandire chithandizo, adati adalandira kalata yochokera ku UnitedHealthcare yoti “alibe mbiri yomulembetsa chaka chamawa chamaphunziro,” ndipo adokotala afunika “kuyesanso pakadutsa masiku 60.”

Polephera kuchedwetsanso chithandizo, dokotala wake akuti chithandizocho chingawononge $ 800 mpaka $ 1,600, ndipo Reed (maphunziro omaliza maphunziro atolankhani) amayenera kusaina chikalata chovomereza kuti amulipira ngakhale inshuwaransi yake yakukana chithandizocho.

“Ndinakhumudwa kwambiri … ndakhala ndikukumana ndi United chilimwe chonse choncho ndikumva ngati ndikulipira inshuwalansi popanda chifukwa,” adatero Reed. “Pennsylvania sikufuna kuimbidwa mlandu.”

Ndi “comedy” yomwe ophunzira omaliza maphunzirowo sanauzidwe za vutoli mpaka atadziwonetsa kale kwa ophunzira ambiri, Reid adati.

Ndi mayankho a Twitter a ophunzira okhumudwa omwe amaliza maphunzirowa akugawana zomwe adakumana nazo, ophunzirawo adazindikira mwachangu kuti izi zidachitikanso zaka zapitazo.

M’malo mwa ophunzira omaliza maphunzirowo, Campbell anayamba kufika ku Sukulu ya Omaliza Maphunziro a Pennsylvania ponena za nkhaniyi, ndipo pa August 24, memo inaperekedwa kwa ophunzira omaliza maphunziro, omwe, malinga ndi Campbell, sanapezeke kwa ophunzira ambiri monga momwe zinalili. mu mawonekedwe a fayilo ya PDF yotsekedwa.



Billy Campbell yemwe adamaliza maphunziro awo akujambula chithunzi kunja kwa Electrical Engineering Building Lachiwiri, September 6, 2022 ku University Park, Pennsylvania.




Chikalatacho chinati:

“Chofunika kwambiri, kusankhidwa kwa kagulu ka othandizira alumni, omaliza maphunziro, ndi omaliza maphunziro a semester ya kugwa kwa 2022 kwachedwetsedwa mosayembekezereka. Zotsatira zake, Pennsylvania Student Health Insurance Plan ndi UnitedHealthcare Student Resources ya ophunzirawa sinayambitsidwebe. .

Komabe, kuperekedwa kudzayambiranso mpaka pa Ogasiti 13, 2022 kwa onse othandizira omaliza maphunziro, anzawo omaliza maphunziro, kapena omaliza maphunziro ndi mabanja awo omwe adalembetsa ku Pennsylvania Student Health Inshuwalansi akamaliza maphunziro awo. Sukulu ya Omaliza Maphunziro ikugwira ntchito limodzi ndi mabungwe othandizira anthu kuti awonetsetse kuti otsalawo atha posachedwa. ”

Malinga ndi memo, ophunzira omwe akufunika chithandizo chamankhwala panthawiyi adalangizidwa kuti ‘asachedwe’ nthawi yofunikira yachipatala kapena kuwonjezeredwa kwamankhwala, agwiritse ntchito UHS ndipo adadziwitsidwa kuti Ofesi ya Inshuwaransi ya Zaumoyo ya Ophunzira ‘ithandizira kulipira’.

Sara Addis, wothandizana nawo wa Sukulu ya Omaliza Maphunziro, adanena kudzera pa imelo kuti sukuluyi sichiyendetsa ntchito yolemba ophunzira ku SHIP; Choncho, sukulu yomaliza maphunziro “sinkadziwa kuchedwa” ndipo “sangathe kutumiza mauthenga pasadakhale”.

“Titangodziwa momwe zinthu zilili, nthawi yomweyo tinafika ku maofesiwa kuti tipeze mfundo zoyenera zothandizira ophunzira kuyendetsa dongosololi ngati akukumana ndi mavuto,” adatero Ades. “Tikhala tikuwunikanso mwatsatanetsatane ntchito yolembera anthu ntchito m’masiku akubwerawa kuti tidziwe zomwe tingachite kuti tipewe kapena kuchepetsa izi kuti zisachitike mtsogolomu.”

Ophunzira omaliza maphunziro ndi ogwira nawo ntchito omwe adakhudzidwa adati sakusangalala ndi momwe Penn State adayankhira vutoli.

Hernandez adati memoyo idayankha Campbell “kukakamiza sukulu.”

“Zolembazo sizikunena chilichonse,” adatero Campbell. “chiyani kapena chiyani [the memo] Iye akuti ndi zoona, koma sizikusemphana ndi zomwe takumana nazo kuti kwa sabata imodzi kapena kuposerapo takhala ndi vutoli.

Campbell adati pali “nthawi zina zomwe sizingatheke kupita ku UHS,” kuphatikizapo kukhala kunja kwa tawuni mofanana ndi momwe Hernandez analili. Ananenanso kuti pamakhala nthawi zina zomwe mankhwala sapezeka ku UHS.

Kupita ku UHS sikunalinso mwayi kwa wophunzira womaliza maphunziro a psychology yemwe anali kunja kwa boma atazindikira kuti vuto likuchitika.

Wophunzirayo, yemwe adapempha kuti asadziwike, amadwala mutu waching’alang’ala komanso nkhani za msana ndi khosi, ndipo mankhwala ake samachepetsa ululu.

Wophunzirayo adapita kuchipatala kukalandira jakisoni yemwe adalandira kale pa Ogasiti 17 ndipo adauzidwa kuti alibe inshuwaransi yazaumoyo. Urgent Care anakana kuchiza wophunzirayo “ngakhale pa malamulo a dokotala.”

Chosankha chawo chokha chinali kulipira $ 125 kuchokera m’thumba lawo kuti akawachezere, osaphatikizapo mtengo wakuwombera. Iwo anali mu ululu kwa masiku angapo ndipo anaphonya ntchito kwa mlungu umodzi popanda chithandizo asanabwerere kwa dokotala popanda vuto pa August 20.

“Ndimachita mantha ndi zimene ndikuona kuti ndilandira bilu yopusa,” anatero wophunzirayo. “Sizinachitike kwa ine – sindimadziwa choti ndichite.”

Klein adati ophunzira omwe akhudzidwa omwe amafunikira chithandizo kutali ndi UHS adalangizidwa kuti alumikizane ndi Student Health Insurance Office ponena za chithandizo chamankhwala ndi mankhwala.

Kukhumudwa komwe kukukulirakulira mu ulusi wa Twitter pankhaniyi kwakopa chidwi cha Michael Skvarla, wothandizira pulofesa wa entomology.

Iye analemba kuti, “Pepani koma ndi chiyani chatsopano ndi izi @GradSchoolPSU? Kodi ndingatani kuti ophunzira anga azichita ntchito zapamunda (kapena ntchito ina pa nkhaniyi) ngati alibe inshuwalansi ya umoyo?”

Erica Macinger, wothandizira pulofesa wa tizilombo toyambitsa matenda, anayankha kuti, “Ndikuvomereza, koma chonde kumbukirani kuti izi zimachitika mwezi uliwonse wa August. Si zoona, koma si zachilendo.”

Kwa wophunzira womaliza maphunziro Stephen Baksa, iyi sinali “ngozi yowona”.

“Izi zachitika kale, kusiyana kokha ndiko kuti ophunzira ambiri omaliza maphunziro akungozindikira,” adatero Bexa (Omaliza Maphunziro a Sayansi ndi Zomangamanga). “Lingaliro losakhala ndi inshuwaransi yazaumoyo ngakhale kwa sabata ndizovuta.”

Monga wogwira ntchito ku Pennsylvania State, Paxa adati, antchito “aletsedwa” kugwira ntchito yachiwiri.

“Momwe zimagwirira ntchito ndikuti amafuna kuti mukhale ndi inshuwaransi yazaumoyo, ndipo mwaukadaulo sayenera kuigwiritsa ntchito,” adatero Bexa. “Koma, ngati mwatsekeredwa ndipo mulibe njira ina yogwirira ntchito, Pennsylvania Health Insurance Program ikuwoneka ngati njira yokhayo.”

Malinga ndi tsamba la Pennsylvania State Policy, palibe munthu amene angapatsidwe ntchito yolipidwa kuposa nthawi imodzi nthawi imodzi.

Hernandez adati “zinali zokhumudwitsa” kukhala ndi ntchito zakunja mu pulogalamu yomaliza maphunziro chifukwa “chikhalidwe chomwe chilipo ndikuti ophunzira okha ndi omwe amagwira ntchito ku yunivesite.”

Kwa ogwira ntchito omaliza maphunziro azaka zopitilira 26 omwe salinso ndi inshuwaransi yazaumoyo ya makolo awo, izi zimasiya SHIP ngati njira yopindulitsa kwambiri, ngati si njira yokhayo yopezera chithandizo.

Campbell adati nkhaniyi ndi gawo la “zovuta zambiri zomwe ophunzira omaliza maphunziro amakumana nazo zomwe ziyenera kuthetsedwa.”

“Choyamba,” Baksa adanena kuti akuyembekeza “kupepesa pazochitikazi” kuchokera ku yunivesite komanso kufotokozera “chifukwa chiyani izi zidachitika” ndi zomwe Penn State idzachita “kuonetsetsa kuti izi sizidzachitikanso m’tsogolomu. ”

“Sizili ngati, ‘O, Pennsylvania ndi olemba ntchito oipa. “Zili ngati Penn State sachitira bwino ophunzira omaliza maphunziro, ndipo ichi ndi chitsanzo china.”

Ngati mukufuna kutumiza kalata kwa mkonzi, dinani apa.
