Filling the need for trusted information on national health issues…

I’m going to a college that offers a student health plan. Can I stay covered as a dependent on my parent’s policy or do I have to take the student health coverage?

You can stay on your parent’s plan. Eligibility for student health coverage does not make you ineligible to be covered as a dependent on your parent’s policy up to the age of 26.
