Hey guys,

Didn't find any threads on this subject so I was thinking maybe we could start one on health insurance for graduate students while enrolled. This could be a directory for listing schools that offer health insurance, purchasing your own insurance, or working for companies that provide health insurance for part-timers.

So that being said, what are your plans for health insurance while pursuing your graduate degree?

Thank you!

LMU requires that all full-time students (undergrad and grad) have health insurance. You can either purchase through the program they endorse (Aetna) or show proof that you have other health coverage.

The school's insurance program is essentially "sickness and accident insurance," which basically means that you don't get any preventative medicine services, but if you're sick or involved in an accident it will be covered. It also includes a decent prescription plan as well.

At Columbia, you're automatically enrolled in student health insurance as a part of you tuition. I've only had minor health issues so far (sinus infections, etc.) but the student health insurance is pretty easy/fast/awesome.

Lol that's both hilarious and sad at the same time. I'm sure that's how most people roll :p

I was thinking of working part-time at Starbucks or something since it would help pay the bills and provide health insurance.

Good thread. My agents in PA can do health insurance in most states. Also, with recent legislation you should be able to piggy back your folks policy until your close to 60 years old (actually I think its about 29 yrs is the cut off). That would be a good place to start. If you do need to get your own insurance i would be happy to refer anyone to my guy...just ask. Otherwise, look into the recent health care legislation as there are some loopholes

The new law only lets you stay on your parents' plan until you're 26. Most people graduate grad film school after they've already turned 26. Just something to keep in mind.
