As you begin the next chapter of your life, Tusculum College would like to make you aware of options related to federal law and your health insurance plans. The attached information describes the healthcare opportunities now available to graduates. This document lays out the options available including getting health insurance through employer-based coverage, staying on a parent’s 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:
• Potentially stay on their parents insurance until they are 26.
