Are you among the 2.9 million freshmen nationwide who have just started college, or are about to? As you buy your books, ponder the best meal plan or wonder whether you will get along with your roommate, don’t forget about health insurance.
Whether you’re an undergrad or graduate student, your options depend on where you go to college, if you already have coverage through a family or individual health plan, and how much money you make.
It might surprise you to know you could qualify for no-cost Medicaid, the public health insurance program for people with low income.
