Blog Owner’s Reasons for Waiving Health Insurance
In order to continue my studies at Bridgewater State University, I have decided to waive my health insurance policy. This decision was not taken lightly and there are a few reasons why I made this choice. First and foremost, I value the education that I am receiving here at Bridgewater State. I know that the professors are passionate about their work and the opportunities that BSU provides me – both academically and career-wise – are second to none. In addition, instituting a health insurance policy would add an additional cost that I cannot afford at this time. Second, as an international student, I am aware of the difficulties that come with having health insurance. Many countries do not offer comprehensive coverage and/or prohibitively high premiums. Although BSU does have excellent health care resources, it is not possible for me to afford to utilize them FULLY since my insurance would cover only a fraction of the costs. Finally, by opting out of health insurance I am taking a proactive stance towards maintaining good physical and mental health throughout my entire academic career here at BSDU. No one knows better than I do how quickly circumstances can change and how important it is to be prepared for whatever life throws my way.
