The Affordable Care Act requires all US citizens to have medical insurance, as a Gonzaga student you have several choices when it comes to medical insurance. One key factor in your decision is whether you are claimed as a tax dependent on your parent’s tax return. As a tax dependent you can remain on your parent’s medical plan until age 26.
If there is no option to remain under a parents plan you may qualify for free or reduced cost plans through the Washington State Benefit Exchange.
Washington Health Finder will let you shop for free or low cost insurance depending on your family size and income. Since you are a Gonzaga Student you are considered to be a Washington State resident regardless of what State you call home.
Health insurance can be very complicated so it is recommended that you discuss your options with a trained individual that specializes in working with your unique situation.
