Health Insurance for College Students
As your child prepares to head off to college, probably the last thing on his or her mind (and yours) is health insurance. But getting sick or injured away from home can be an unpleasant experience--more so if your child doesn't know his or her health-care options. You'll want to make sure that your child's health insurance is in place before you pack up the car. There are basically two ways to insure your child's health while at college: your family health plan or a health plan provided through the college.
