No Health Insurance?
If you're a typical college student without much income, there are subsidies available to lower the cost of private insurance. If you are low-income, you might be eligible for public insurance, also known as Medicaid, for which you would not need to pay. As you apply for the insurance through an online exchange, you will be prompted to enter income and demographic information. The system will determine your eligibility for Medicaid and subsidies based on this information. Learn more about your options here: http://depts.washington.edu/hhpccweb/health-resource/essential-information-for-students-about-the-affordable-care-act/
