Career student gambit: messed up by insurance
It's been a while since I posted. I'm pedorrero, the "small" trustafarian and professional student. Got my MA Spanish in December, now in a graduate program and enjoying cheap student health insurance -- until this month, anyway. Got this not so cheery news today:
the annual cost for the voluntary coverage went from about $1600 to $2534: "this (~54%) increase is unavoidable since students in the voluntary plan utilized the insurance at a much higher rate than those that are mandated to have coverage [international students]." Alas, the word is out and the graying students are now paying a higher share. [moderator edit]
I've got nothing against an honest day's work, provided that someone else does it.
