Short-term medical insurance is an ideal choice for new graduates or alumni between jobs. After graduation, many students lose their health insurance coverage under their parents' plans, making them vulnerable to high healthcare costs. GradMed provides protection from the major expenses associated with an accident or unexpected illness, providing coverage while job searching or waiting for new employee benefits to begin.

Health Insurance Opportunities for Graduating Students
As graduating seniors begin departing for the next chapter of their lives, the White House Office of Public Engagement wanted to circulate this one-pager on the healthcare opportunities now available to graduates. This document lays out the options available including getting health insurance through employer based coverage, staying on parents’ plan until the age of 26, as well as going to HealthCare.gov to choose a plan in the Health Insurance Marketplace. As you may know, graduation is a general mile marker for many significant life changes, such as expired student health insurance or moving from home, that trigger a “Special Enrollment Period” that allows a 60 day window for students to sign up for coverage in the marketplace even though the open enrollment period has ended.
Departing students who don’t have insurance through a job or new educational opportunity have two opportunities through the new health law:
· To check out the marketplace: www.healthcare.gov
· Potentially stay on their parents insurance until they are 26
