Leaving My Benefits Behind

Posted on April 11, 2008 @ 10:39 am

I am a Canadian citizen that will be spending the next few months of my life attending a college in the States.  This brought about a lot of changes in a lot of things including my health coverage.  Being a resident of Saskatchewan, I have never known anything except for free coverage.

I knew, that my free health care coverage would be no good while I was attending night classes at college.  For this reason, my parents urged me to look into getting short term insurance.  They wanted to make sure that I would be able to seek medical attention should anything unselect. 

I am not an overly cautious person but agreed that my health coverage was my responsibility and I needed to do something to take care of it.  I sent away for forms as I wanted to fill them out and have the coverage available as soon as I traveled down to my college.
