Tallahassee Democrat | 06/13/2005 | 'If it were my child, I'd do it in a heartbeat'

The first patient examined by Dr. Celeste Paquette during her medical training was a Florida State University student with bacterial meningitis.

The young woman was in a coma because of inflammation caused by a bacterial invasion of her brain and spinal fluid and the resulting explosion of white blood cells.
"It's a nasty purulent bacteria," warns Paquette, medical director at FSU's Thagard Student Health Center, of this rare, sometimes deadly and disabling disease.

"If it were my child, I'd do it in a heartbeat," said Paquette.She cautioned that the disease is too unpredictable and deadly for comfort, especially when trying to guess who's most at risk: "The bacteria don't read the textbook."

International students attending Florida universities are required to have health insurance, which became a requirement about five years ago, said Dr. Celeste Paquette, medical director of the student health center at Florida State University in Tallahassee.

...
Paquette, of FSU, said another problem is a student may be covered by his or her parent's HMO but the plan is so restrictive that the student doesn't get the access to care that he or she needs away from home.
Paquette sees the potential for each Florida university to make its own decision about requiring health insurance or not, now that each university has its own board of trustees.
"That would be possible," she said."We have been talking about it with our board of trustees and I think all of the universities are talking about it."
Many private institutions, such as the University of Miami, require students to have insurance coverage, she said.
She favors a broader group health plan for public university students in Florida, which could be done on a regional basis because health care costs vary around the state, she said.
"We could have three or four universities purchase the same plan, if 37,000 students all purchase the same plan, the return (for the carrier) is reasonable," she said.
Paquette said local hospitals in Tallahassee have declined to take referrals from the student health center because the students are uninsured.
She couldn't say, though, whether any of the hospitals, in Tallahassee or in other college towns, are applying pressure to universities to pursue an insurance mandate for domestic students.
An estimate at FSU is that 30 percent of the entire student body has no health insurance, she said.The estimate is derived from the students using the university health center.
