ABA Health Insurance for Law Students & Recent J.D.'s
For law students and J.D.'s anticipating the coming long weekend--a brief respite from the
ongoing rigmarole of law school or post law school life--there are probably
many things on your mind. Health insurance may not rank high on the list, but maybe it should.
Your law school might offer a plan to students, this is especially true for a law school that is part of a broader campus (i.e. including undergrads, other grad programs, etc.). If you are a recent J.D. seeking health insurance, getting a plan through your alma mater may not be in the cards, but you can do a little comparison shopping from the comfort of your laptop. Sites such as vimo, health insurance finders, and netQuote will allow you compare available plans so you can balance the scales of affordability and value.
If you're more into one-stop-shopping, take a turn over to the ABA website. The ABA offers a health insurance coverage for enrolled law students and recent graduates.
Here are a few useful links to research the ABA health insurance plan:
So before that tickle in the throat becomes a hurricane at your lips, consider using this window of time to research your options in health insurance.
