So the company that underwrites the student insurance program was told yesterday by the Insurance Commissioner's Office to stop selling plans in the state because their plans violate state law.  (Brief P-I story here.)

I'm not really smart about insurance, e.g. I don't really know exactly what underwriting is or if the fact that the UW student plan is administered by a different company makes a difference, but it seems like this might be an issue for the UW?

At the least I thought it was funny that the insurance the U offers its students is from a company that just got banned from selling in the state.  Football coaches, insurance companies - you name it, the UW knows how to pick 'em :)
