Health Insurance Blues

Posted on February 28,2012 by sskeenmspp

My birthday was last week, and for a nice birthday present, Blue Cross terminated my insurance coverage. Surprise!

Apparently, when you turn 26, you are no longer covered by your parents' insurance plan. I knew that at some point, but I guess I forgot to deal with it ahead of time. I suppose it got lost in the shuffle of looking for next year's internship, keeping up with my coursework, getting married, etc.

Thankfully, although my parents can no longer cover me through their health insurance, they are quite supportive, and they are helping me find a new plan as quickly as possible. In the meantime, I'm going to try really hard not to get sick or injured.
