    If you're healthy you could go with something that has a high deductible or major medical (do schools allow you to have that?). I've seen some on e-insurance.com that go for like $50 a month. If you search this forum this topic has been discussed before for some good non-school options. Some have done SOMA (which isn't all that great from what's been said) but if your school plan is worth it (check your benefits!) it might be nice.

    If you're a SOMA member you can get their insurance, its pretty good, runs me around $125/month.
