I applied for Unicare as well. My quoted rate for health insurance ($2500 deductible), dental, & $25000 life policy is $118/mo.
I would advise anyone against the school's policy. As an RN who worked with leukemia patients, I saw many healthy people in their 20s-30s diagnosed with leukemia and rack up upwards of a million dollars in health care bills. The school's policy only covers $400,000 in benefits. You never know what might happen.
A note to the ladies on the board (especially the married like myself): the UT plan covers maternity in the event of an unintended (presumably) pregnancy but Unicare, BCBS, & humana don't. Humana might but it is probably $100+ extra per month. Just something to keep in mind.
