Though some colleges and universities offer a student health plan with tuition, many plans are inadequate to cover a major injury or illness. For example, Portland State University offers a plan for students, but the plans costs about $237 a month! A typical student should be able to find adequate insurance for half that cost. Students might be able to stay on their parent’s insurance, but few plans are nationwide which result in out-of-network charges. Students who participate in sports are at greater risk of a costly accident, which might not be covered by the college’s health plan if the injury is serious. Acquiring Student Insurance is easy and affordable, making the transition into independence a smoother process.
