Short-Term Medical Insurance:

GradMed short-term health insuranceGradMed short-term medical insurance is an ideal choice for new graduates or alumni between jobs. After graduation, many students lose their health insurance coverage under their parents’ plans, making them vulnerable to high health care costs. GradMed provides protection from the major expenses associated with an accident or unexpected illness.
