Graduating from school

You’ve graduated. Here’s what you need to know

In most group health insurance plans, children are covered up to age 21 if they’re not in school, or up to age 25 if they’re enrolled in a post-secondary program. Once you graduate, it is important for you to purchase a personal health insurance plan to have the same coverage that you may have received under your parents’ group insurance plan. Use our handy plan finder today and see how affordable our plans can be.

Now that I’ve graduated, I’m no longer covered under my parents’ plan. Will you cover me?

As a young person just out of school, you are surely on a budget. You may think that you don’t have many options when it comes to health insurance, but that is not the case. Blue Cross offers several affordable health insurance plans, from basic coverage to comprehensive coverage, at a price you can afford.

What kind of health insurance can I afford?

Depending on the coverage you need, Blue Cross offers health insurance plans starting at as little as $20.88/month*. Our basic plans can include coverage for dental visits, prescription drugs, physiotherapy, travel insurance and more.
*Sample rate based on core health coverage for an individual between the ages of 16 and 39.

Premiums are affordable and easy to fit into your budget, so if unexpected medical costs arise, you can rest assured that you are well protected for any costs that are not covered under OHIP.
