That looks like Shin Godzilla’s first form (not shown in the 2016 movie).

On a completely different subject, the large religious university in eastern Idaho that told students Medicaid did not count for insurance, but boy howdy, their really bad insurance offered by the university itself (which doesn’t meet ACA standards) does, reverses course and “apologizes for community turmoil.” It took the New York Times writing a piece headlined “University to Students on Medicaid: Buy Private Coverage, or Drop Out” to get BYU Idaho’s attention.

REXBURG — Brigham Young University-Idaho has reversed its decision to reject Medicaid as a waiver to its Student Health Plan.

The university issued a statement and an apology for the turmoil the decision caused in a campus-wide email Monday night. University spokesman Brett Crandall confirmed the email, but declined to comment further.

“We have decided that Medicaid, as it has in previous years, will meet the health coverage requirement at BYU-Idaho,” the email says.

The email goes on to say that because of its limited capacity and scope of services, the Student Health Center will continue not serving as a Medicaid service provider.

“The well-being of our students and their families is very important to us,” the notice said. “We are grateful for the feedback we have received from our campus community and for the input of the local medical community. We apologize for the turmoil caused by our earlier decision.”

This was a particular slam because Idaho is expanding Medicaid and many poor young families which go to BYU Idaho will likely qualify for the expansion. It’s still unclear why BYU Idaho was being such shitheels about it, unless they really expected people to sign up for their truly shitty health insurance.
