Gonzaga Offers Health Insurance Benefits to Same-Sex Partners

According to the Gonzaga Bulletin, Spokane's Gonzaga University extends health insurance benefits to the partners of same-sex employees.

Mary Joan Hahn, director of community and public relations at Gonzaga, reportedly told the Bulletin that Gonzaga conforms to state law, which requires benefits for registered domestic partners. Washington state also legalized so-called same-sex "marriage" last year.

Gonzaga is self-insured and contracts with a third party to administer medical benefits.

“Anytime anyone chooses to get married, it’s really important to think about insurance coverage,” Andrea Fallenstein, a sociology professor at Gonzaga, reportedly told the Bulletin. “Certainly, I really appreciate Gonzaga moving forward and insuring our marital partners, because that would be fantastic.”
