When you are a student in Green Valley, you want to know about all of your options for health insurance. The ACA requires you to have a policy, but there are plenty of options to consider.
Where Your Policy Will Come From
Your policy can come from an individual plan, from your family, or from the school. More and more colleges across the country are offering insurance plans, and if you read the fine print, it may already be included within your tuition. Find out how much you are being charged for the health insurance as you may want to get it on your own as opposed to through the school.
The Kind of Coverage You Want
You will have various options when it comes to coverage. You will want to ensure you have health insurance for preventative health as well as when you become sick. Coverage can also include various diseases that you may have now, injuries that you may sustain in school sports, hospital stays, and much more. It should also include dental and vision coverage.
How to Afford a Policy
Insurance companies are going to calculate the cost of your policy based upon your level of health. This means you want to make sure that you are as healthy as possible. The “freshman 15” is a contributor to obesity in America. Many smokers begin at the age of 18, and there is a lot of risky sexual behavior that takes place in college that can lead to STDs. Be aware of the possibilities so that you can avoid them. Additionally, you will want to compare quotes to ensure you are getting the most affordable policy.
