Student Health Insurance
Student Health Insurance is a special type of Individual Plan designed specifically for students currently enrolled in school away from their home (which is the case of many college students across the nation). Student Health Insurance is strictly enforced in most Universities and Colleges across America, and schools usually offer you alternatives and plans offered by third-party companies that have partnered with the school, although most are flexible and let students obtain Health Insurance through any private Health Provider. If you were previously insured (or are currently insured) by a parent’s policy, this one might still be available for coverage. When looking for Student Health Insurance, remember that as Individual plans, rates and benefits offered can be very different among various providers.
You should take into consideration that Student Health Insurance plans usually protects the individual wherever he is, not only at school. The insured will usually receive coverage at school, at home and while travelling or studying abroad.
