Student Health and Medical Insurance
Health and Accident Insurance for College Students
Tuition, books, rent, food,
fun... health insurance?
With all the things you have to pay for college,
paying for health insurance is probably last on your list. But what's last
on your list could be the first thing to put you at serious financial risk.
Think about this - if you're currently without health insurance, just one
knee injury could cost up to $12,000*.
That's why Fortis Insurance Company created
Student Select* - renewable, individual health and medical insurance for
Private Health Associates, US is here to assist
in identifying the special needs of students so you can secure the comprehensive
health and medical insurance you require from our "virtual agency".
Student Select Health and Medical
Insurance is ideal if you find yourself in one of the following situations:
- Are you no longer eligible
for coverage under your parents' health plan? Many health plans only cover
you up to age 19 - 23, or they require you to have more college credit hours
than Student Select Insurance.
- Does your college or university
require coverage but you find the college sponsored plan inadequate with
no flexibility? Many college or university plans offer "bare bones" benefits
that may not be enough to give you the financial security against large,
unexpected health and accident expenses.
- Do you attend school outside
an HMO or PPO region? Restrictions on coverage outside your HMO or PPO
service areas may leave you with inadequate protection.
- Is your current health insurance
coverage too expensive? Traditionally, individual major medical plans
cost two to three times as much as Student Select Health and Medical Insurance.
The cost to include a student on an employer's health insurance plan as
a dependent can also be very expensive.
