Tips for Buying Health Insurance
Read the entire brochure carefully. Pay special attention to:

  • The list of exclusions (what is not covered under the plan).
  • The "Pre-Existing Condition" clause. A pre-existing condition is an illness or medical condition that has been previously diagnosed. Most insurance companies won't cover a pre-existing condition until you have been enrolled for at least 6 months.
  • When the benefits begin and end.
  • Who and where you can be treated. Some insurance policies have a specific "network" of health care providers to whom you can visit. If you go to someone out of the network, you may be responsible for paying a larger portion of the bill.
  • What portion of any medical expenses you will be responsible for paying.
  • The mandatory health fee students pay each quarter is NOT health insurance.
