Health insurance for students and recent grads

Are you losing coverage under your parents, now that you are 25?

If you are covered under your parents’ group insurance plan, your benefits can terminate at age 18 (or at age 25 if you are enrolled in school full time). Plan ahead and use our handy plan finder for a personal health insurance today!

Young and healthy? It’s the best time to secure coverage

Many health insurance plans require information on your medical history. At Blue Cross, we offer basic health insurance plans that are guaranteed, so no medical history is required. But if you are looking for more comprehensive coverage, it is a good idea to apply now, while you are in good health.

Looking for a job? Get temporary coverage

Are you job hunting? Do you need benefits until you secure full-time employment? We have affordable health insurance plans that can bridge the gap.

Health insurance for college and university students

If you are a college or university student on a budget, we can help! We have basic, affordable health insurance plans to cover health and medical expenses, so you can focus on your studies and not worry about paying for dental visits.

The best time to apply for insurance is when you are young and healthy. Planning for unexpected costs with an insurance plan can also help you manage a monthly budget. Our plans are affordable and start as low as $18.91* per month, which is less than what you pay for parking on campus. With a health insurance plan from Blue Cross, you can protect your health and your finances.
