Health Care and Services
Post-secondary tuition is a costly investment and an unforeseen accident or illness could create a serious financial burden to continuing that education. Each year an increasing number of students find that they are no longer covered by their parent's insurance or that higher co-pays and deductibles leave them with much greater out-of-pocket expenses for health care than in the past.

Here are a few things to keep in mind while choosing a Health Insurance Policy:
- Know what you 'must have.'
- Sudden injuries or illnesses can't be foreseen. But some needs may be expected. For example, if you have been diagnosed with or have a family history of diabetes, you may want to make sure that screenings and prescriptions are included.
- If you have a preferred physician or hospital, make sure they are in the plan network you are considering. This will help keep out-of-network cost lower.
- Budget accordingly.
- Know how much you will spend each month on your plan.
- Consider your spouse and/or dependents that need to be included on your plan. This may increase the cost of your plan.
- Factor in the cost of medications that you take on a regular basis and scheduled well visits.
- Keep money aside for ‘emergency needs' such as, sudden injuries or illnesses.
- Look at more than one plan when reviewing your options. Speak with Health Care representatives to ask questions and fully understand your options before signing up for a plan.
