Health Insurance for Graduates

If you are leaving school or changing jobs, you may be eligible for important new benefits that will ensure you get the care you need and deserve.  

Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius launched a new initiative to help educate graduating college and university seniors about their new health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act.  

As a result of the new health care reform law, many young adults will be eligible to remain on their parent's health insurance plan until their 26th birthday.  It doesn't matter if you're married, living with your parents, in school or financially independent.  For more information on how to stay insured, call the customer service number for your parents' insurer and explain your situation.
