Health Insurance for the Recent College Graduate - Articles Surfing


As you graduate college and head into the great, big, scary world, there are probably a lot of things on your mind. First and foremost is finding a good job, then finding a place to live, and then maybe figuring out how to pay back those student loans. One thing that might not cross your mind is health insurance. All of your life, you've most likely been a dependent on your parents' coverage, but that ship is about to sail'if it hasn't already.

We know what you're thinking, 'Why do I need health insurance? I'm young, I'm healthy, and doctor visits are few and far between. So why pay for something I'll never use?' Hey, we understand where you're coming from. But accidents and illnesses happen without warning, even to the strapping young adults such as you. Sure, health insurance is expensive, but not having it will cost you dearly.

First things to know

Let's get one thing straight, health care in the United States is a nightmare, few will argue that. There are thousands of options when it comes to receiving care and paying for it, some of them good, some of them not so much. When it comes to choosing an insurance policy that's right for you, confusion abounds. So let's learn a little more about your options.

There are two essential categories of health insurance: managed care and indemnity plans. Though you'll pay more for indemnity coverage, it offers much more flexibility than does a managed care plan. Through indemnity coverage, you'll have your choice of doctor, lab, hospital or specialty clinic. When you seek medical care, you'll have to pay an out of pocket expense'called a deductible'before your coverage will kick in. Deductibles range from a few hundred dollars up to $1,000 or more, depending on your policy. Also, indemnity plans require a co-payment on medical care
