Recent college graduate? What health insurance options do you have? Several experts weighed in to help you understand the range of choices and what they might cost.
Last year, the Commonwealth Fund, a health care foundation, reported that about one-third of young adults become uninsured for some period of time in the year after they graduate from college.
Should something happen—a car accident, say, or a sports injury—these young people could face significant medical bills while they’re trying to pay off college loans.
That’s why health care experts recommend that young adults purchase some kind of coverage.
