New College Grad? You Can Get Health Plans Through Covered CaliforniaJune 10, 2019 |
by Sierra Sun Times
It’s college graduation season, and congrats to the class of 2019! The moment they’ve worked so hard for is finally here! They’re ready to walk across that stage, grab that diploma and begin the rest of their lives. But life can be complicated, and it’s imperative to have the important things — like one’s health — covered. Graduation can mean that college students are coming off a school-sponsored health plan, or turning 26, the limit for when they can remain on parents’ health plans.
Transitioning into Covered California health plans is relatively simple through the Special Enrollment process, and graduating college students may even qualify for financial help to pay for monthly health care costs – often for about $50 per month.
