College students are usually required to carry some sort of health insurance. At my school, you were automatically enrolled in the student insurance plan (about $3000/year) unless you could prove that you had coverage under a similar outside plan.

I dont think that requirement is as common among law/grad schools.


Check out gradmed.com if you want some more options. I've got what basically amounts to catastrophic coverage through them, pretty decentlhy priced.

Let me chime in.  I had surgery when I was 26.  Up to that point, I was perfectly healthy and almost never saw a doctor.  One night in the hospital, and six weeks of rehab, and I was looking at a bill of close to $20,000.  All of it was covered by insurance.

GET THE INSURANCE.  $835 is cheap.  Consider the risk/reward relationship.

You really have to think of it this way, just because you have no health problems and probalby won't for the next three years doesn't mean you won't get hit by a bus tomorrow.  Also god forbid you get something or somethign that you never knew you had developes you won't be able to get insurance because it'll be a pre-existing condition. \

Great policies for your situation. I paid about $50 a month. High deductible, copay, etc, but if you get really sick you won't have to worry about the bill.

What are you talking about?  I predicted it perfectly.  Just don't look at the modification time of that post.
