Health Insurance and PRN


I am a single guy/RN currently in graduate school and am looking into going from full time to PRN if possible.

The only IF is the medical insurance aspect. Any of you guys works PRN or PT and has medical insurance somewhere else? Not from a spouse or such, but maybe through Covered California or were able to buy/get insurance somewhere for a not so bad price?

I am in California.

Thanks in advance

I'm not from California, but I am clueless about what to do health insurance wise. My husband's insurance went up again, now to $800 a month if I were on it. We can't afford that. I, for various reasons, can only work part time right now. The cheapest plan I found on market place was $400 a month with a crazy high deductible. It might as well be $800. My husband and I can't afford that either. But we make too much for any kind of assistance for me.

Sigh....I don't know what to do.

Does your school offer a plan for students? When I went back to school for my BSN (I was a second degree student) I received insurance through the school. The premium for the year was paid in one lump sum with my tuition for that semester. I'm not sure if it's different for grad school. Anyone who does any type of clinical at my school was required to have health insurance and if they didn't exempt out (by providing proof of coverage already) they were automatically enrolled. Good luck!
