Getting Health Insurance
The fall semester is well underway and college students are hitting the books to prepare for tests, papers and extra credit. But there is one thing students may not have thought to prepare for — what you will do if you get sick or injured?
Even if you are fit and healthy, it’s always a good idea to have health insurance! You have car insurance even though your car is running fine, don’t you? Why? Just in case something happens. The same logic can be applied to health insurance. It gives you access to affordable care in case you get hurt or sick.
Getting insurance and learning how to use it while you are away at school doesn’t have to be hard or overwhelming!
