College graduates often do not understand the significance of health insurance. Many do not find it necessary or even affordable. In one study done in 2008 by the Commonwealth Fund, 34% of college graduates were uninsured for sometime.
While recent graduates are searching for jobs, purchasing short term health insurance is the best option. The one suggestion many people have is to NOT skip health coverage even for a few months. Young adults and graduates might think they are bulletproof, but one can never be certain if a medical emergency sneeks up on them.
Your life is your health, and that should be the LAST thing that is put at stake. Graduates: Be aware that there are insurance plans out there that can fit your health needs and your wallet.
