Student Health Insurance is important. It guarantees that you will be able to obtain necessary treatment in the event that a serious illness or injury occurs. A college student without health insurance can easily spend more money on health care to treat a single case of the flu or a broken arm/leg than the annual cost of a student health insurance policy. Maintaining adequate health insurance coverage will prevent severe financial hardships should unforeseen major medical care be required. Make sure that you have the appropriate health insurance coverage so that an unexpected illness or accident doesn’t hinder your wellness or academic success.
