MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 12 (UPI) -- The University of Minnesota apologized for some students erroneously being billed $1,000 for health insurance they opted out of receiving.

Carl Anderson, chief operating officer of health services at the Minneapolis school, said a programming glitch resulted in some students being billed $1,000 for health insurance they opted out of receiving. Anderson said the errors will be corrected before the bills are due, WCCO-TV, Minneapolis, reported Thursday.

"We're sorry if you saw something that looked like it may not be correct," Anderson said. "But it is going to get reversed and taken care of before any bill is due to the university."

Anderson said the error resulted in about 1,800 students being billed incorrectly.
