SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I am 24 years old now. I will be 25 years old next year when I apply to medical school and by the time i get into medical school, I will be 26 years old. Since I am under coverage up until 26 under my parent's insurance, what will happen after I reach 26 (ie: can my parents' insurance still provide even though I do not think I will be "eligible" according to policy?). There will still be a few months until I hypothetically enter medical school in August. I know under the new Affordable Care Act, those that do not buy insurance will be fined. In the worst case scenario possible, if I do not have a job at that time, what would happen then or what can I do to avoid the fine?And does anybody know if temp job agencies offer benefits for their part time workers?If anyone knows anything..please do tell thanks!
