I wil be starting med school in the Fall and I have a question about personal health insurance. Currently, I am employed and my health plan covers my wife and I - however, I am worried about what we will do when I begin medical school. How do most of you deal with your health insurance? What are the prices like? Does it cover your spouse?

Thanks for any assistance.

Almost all, if not all, med schools offer health insurance through being a student at their school. If you do have health insurance from an outside source, most will require you to provide evidence that you are covered. The health insurance offered are the typical plans that you see out in the real world, with family and spouse benefits available for more money. Rates differ since schools, like employers, negotiate group rates and some subsidize, but for my school, health insurance is ~1,500 per year for a single person.
