Default Affordable Ins?

Does anyone know about any affordable insurance options for a college student working part time?

I've already checked into my school's ins, and state ins and don't qualify for my work's ins. And my parents are 90% sure I am no longer elligable to go back on their ins plan (it'd be ~$2-300/month anyway).

Even a small lead could be helpful! Thanks

The only thing that I can think of that *might* be less than 200 or 300 per month is a mini-med policy:

You've linked me that before, & I've done a little bit of research, but I don't know where to go/who carried these policies.

I *thought* I had looked that up before. I'll see if I can find who sells them!

Thanks, Missy! Dr Rozell-Shannon also found a study that it looks like I qualify for in NYC

I called the Office today, but the lady I spoke with needed to confirm some things, so I'm waiting to hear back from them (hopefully tomorrow before I have to leave for school).

I'm really hoping this works out & I'll be looking at plane tickets & cheap places to stay soon

No phone call yet. If they haven't gotten back to me by tomorrow (thurs) I'll try calling again.
