$120/mo is cheap. Try the health insurance market place or call a local insurance agency.

Specializes in Med-Surg.

Some states do short term insurance still its only good for 6 months at a time and it was about 50 a month for me.

I guess the expense of cost really differs by state.I found an insurance for $60 .I don't have health issues so I don't need nothing crazy.Doing it just to fulfill the requirement.

$120/month is REALLY cheap. When I was in private market I paid $330/month just for myself as a healthy young adult. With employer sponsored health care it was still a $200/month deduction from my paycheck. My student health plan is paid quarterly but works out to about $250/month. I doubt there are many plans out there that are cheaper than what is currently being offered to you.
