GoHealth Presents a Student Health Insurance Survival Guide
GoHealthInsurance.com Creates a Student Health Insurance Survival Guide to Help Graduates, New Students and Those Still in School
CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - May 10, 2012) - Of all the major decisions facing graduates this time of year, personal health insurance coverage needs to be at the top of the list. Between college group plans, staying on their parents' health insurance plan and options for individual coverage -- young adults have plenty to consider when it comes to health insurance.
"We really wanted to create a useful guide to help every student whether he or she will be graduating this May or starting school in the fall," said Mark Colwell, Manager of Consumer Marketing at GoHealthInsurance.com. "We're worried that students aren't really delving into their health insurance options which could mean some unwelcome surprises with their coverage."
To help college graduates and future students understand all of their options, GoHealthInsurance has created a Student Health Insurance Survival Guide. The guide prepares students for coverage during school and after, while highlighting important facts and tips.
The guide provides:
- An orientation for new students
- A compare and contrast of all health insurance options for students including college plans, an individual health insurance plan and a parents' health insurance plan
- A section on how health care reform will affect student health insurance plans
- A list of five things students need to know about health insurance after graduation
- Glossary of important health insurance terms
Students can also visit the GoHealthInsurance blog to get updates on health insurance news and information.
