I am 18 years old and hypothetically if I go to college. Lets say I get to the spring semester and I’m taking four classes. Now lets say I wish to drop one of those classes, taking me off of my parents health insurance. Do I now need to buy health insurance if I drop out of college for a year? Do I need health insurance at a part time minimum wage job? Remind me how this Health Insurance helps me again? who does this help? And please don’t just say check your parents health care plan,I all ready did if I quit college I am no longer covered.

1 Thought on Do I need to buy health insurance now that we have Health care “reform”?

    The provision requires insurance companies to provide dependent coverage for children up to age 26 for all individual and group policies. However the rule does not take effect until six months following enactment. The key word is “dependent”. Regulations are yet to be written that will clarify to what degree young adults have to be financially dependent on their parents.

    Stay tuned you can’t really do anything until you hear from your parents insurance company…
