Don’t Spend the Rest of Your Life Paying for Student Loans AND a Broken Leg

Services for Real Estate Pros with Independent Insurance Group

It's not surprising that many students go through college without health insurance. Students generally have limited budgets, and health insurance isn't necessarily on their minds - after all, there are student loans to think of and resumes to send out.

However, having a health insurance policy when you're a student is crucial. If you're injured and need medical attention, without health coverage you could be paying for it even longer than your student loans. Did you know that the average cost of an uninsured compound leg fracture is $75,000? And an uninsured spinal fracture is nearly $200,000.

If you're a college or graduate student or a recent graduate without health coverage, you're not alone, but you are taking a giant risk. A good health insurance policy gives you a lot of coverage for a small cost.

When it comes to health insurance, you have a few options. You can get a high-deductible plan, or you can get short term health coverage. Short term coverage is a temporary insurance which lasts just until you get a job with health benefits. Or, if you're healthy, you should consider a major medical policy, which offers more benefits to those in good health.
