Hi there! Would anyone have any insights/information on health insurance while enrolled in Hunter's MSW program? The plan options for the NY State of Health are $400 - 500 per month, I'm wondering if there's a more affordable way.
A funding letter I received says "The research assistantship also qualifies you for a significant fringe benefit, which amounts to about $612 per month (the actual amount varies depending upon the kind of University-approved medical insurance you select)." $612 per month would mean about &7,500 a year and I don't think health insurance alone would worth that much. I'm just curious what the "fringe benefit" usually includes besides health insurance? Also, do we pay tax on this?
I'll be moving from Montana to Massachusetts for grad school, and I'm trying to navigate the ins and outs of the health insurance scene. Is it possible to enroll through the Massachusetts Health Connector website and get coverage before I am physically in Massachusetts (so that I can make sure I have documentation in time to file the waiver paperwork with the university)? Also, the fees for the three schools I am considering are as follows (each for one full year): Northeastern: $2,159 Emerson: $2,795 Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions: $5,925 Is it just me, or is the fee at MGHIHP exorbitant? I even had someone else look at the website to make sure I was reading it properly. I have this fear of messing up the waiver process and getting stuck paying for their plan...yikes!!! I would welcome any advice about how best to handle this! Thank you!
