The Independent Student's Guide to Healthcare
provided by:

The Independent Student's Guide to Healthcare offers valuable information for students living independently for the first time and for recent grads entering the workforce.

Taking responsibility for healthcare is a daunting but necessary step for young adults. The task is even more intimidating for the 18% of young adults who aren't able to rely on their parents for health insurance. Our guide breaks down the vast amount of information into easily digestible sections to help young adults find affordable health insurance and get the care they need. The sections include:

  • Student coverage basics
  • Plans for recent grads and special-status students
  • Strategies for managing health expenses
  • Additional resources

The complete guide can be found here:
