Health insurance for students and recent grads

Are you losing coverage under your parents, now that you are 25?

If you are covered under your parents’ group insurance plan, your benefits generally terminate at the age of majority, either 18 or 21 depending on the contract, or when you stop studying full time. Most insurance plans stop providing coverage completely for dependent children when they turn 25. Plan ahead and get a free, no obligation quote for a personal health insurance plan today!

Young and healthy? It’s time to get coverage

Blue Cross health insurance has the advantages of group insurance with the flexibility of personal insurance. You can protect your health and financial security with your choice of guarantees -- and your health insurance premiums may entitle you to a tax credit. Think about it! An accident or illness that prevents you from working or finding work can take a heavy toll on your finances.

Between jobs and want to be covered?

At Blue Cross, we offer accessible and flexible health insurance products. Whether you’re self-employed or without a group insurance plan, or if you just want to top up your insurance to be 100% covered, we have what you need.

Health insurance for college and university students

If you are a college or university student on a budget, we can help! We have basic, affordable health insurance plans to cover medical and paramedical expenses, so you can focus on your studies and not worry about paying dental fees.

The best time to apply for insurance is when you are young and healthy. Planning for unexpected costs with an insurance plan can also help you manage a monthly budget. Our plans are affordable and start as low as $14.50* per month. With a health insurance plan from Blue Cross, you can protect your health and your finances.
