Health Insurance is changing.

Young adults are typically healthy, but life is unpredictable, and accidents do happen. If you suffer an unexpected injury or illness, you’ll want to be prepared. There are many different types of health plans available to students and young adults. Common plans include student health plans, family plans, Individual Health Insurance or Short-Term Medical.

Finding the right plan for your needs and budget can be daunting. We've gathered resources, products and tools to research different plans here at GradGuard to help you choose.

Things to consider

Under new healthcare legislation, young adults can remain on their parents’ plans until the age of 26, which is a great option for many young adults. Be sure to check with your parents to see if they have a health plan you can join.

Some colleges and universities mandate that students purchase health insurance. Oftentimes these schools offer a health insurance option for students.

When browsing various health insurance options, here are some things to pay attention to:

  • Deductible options
  • Premiums
  • The providers available under the policy possible restrictions
  • What is covered
  • What is not covered
  • Possible fees
  • Available supplemental policies
