College students have several health insurance choices

7561906_SCollege students have several options when it comes to health insurance. Here are some of the most popular ways to obtain coverage:

Stay on your parents’ plan. You may be able to remain covered under a parent’s plan until you turn 26.

Go with a student health plan. Many colleges offer some type of student health plan. Just make sure you check with your student health plan to see if it qualifies as coverage under the nation’s health care law. You’ll also want to review the plan to make sure it is a good choice in terms of cost and coverage. (We can help with that!)

Purchase coverage on your own. Even if you have access to a student health plan, you still are likely able to purchase a health plan on your own. And that could be a better choice depending on the quality of the student health plan that’s available to you. You can enroll in a 2016 plan under the Affordable Care Act until January 31.
