The pandemic has pushed many harsh realities in
higher education to the forefront, none more so than the
inadequacy of healthcare for part-time faculty. With the cost of
an average COVID hospitalization, according to a number of
sources, running in excess of $20,000, the financial effects
alone on an uninsured part-timer contracting COVID can be
devastating. Add a possible uninsured family member or members to
the mix, and the reality becomes even more frightening.
