Tracy if you are in school full-time and work full-time, but do not have health insurance through your place of employment, then your university should have a cheaper insurance plan you can get on. I'd look into it if I were you. It won't be amazing coverage, but it's affordable, covers emergencies and some basic preventative care, and would work until you land that job with decent coverage. The other option is a catastrophic insurance plan. I was on one while in graduate school. I paid $65-80 month and had a $30 copay for urgent care visits, and a $2,500 deductible so if I had a bad event and needed surgery or a hospital stay I was only out $2,500 and this could be paid through a payment plan to the hospital. How do I know all of this? I was on this plan and had a car accident and required surgery and a hospital stay of a few days. I paid the $2500 deductible over a 3 year plan to the hospital that treated me. I also was able to claim a deduction on my taxes each year by purchasing my own health care.<quoted text>
I am! I go to school full-time, work full-time, I do not graduate until next year. Don't go around telling someone what to do until you know their entire situation! It's people like you that don't care about anyone but yourself.
It can be done. I'd recommend talking with your financial aid office at your school first and then if you can't swing your student insurance call an insurance agent.
