Nontraditional Students need health care too!
We need a good health care plan here in the U.S.
Nontraditional students also need this. All college students need health care!
Not having affordable health care adds a huge burden to the already high cost of going back to school in the U.S. So people going back to school have a double burden after they get out: they have to pay back their school costs PLUS many still have to pay a high monthly insurance premium before and after they finally graduate.
Especially older students. They are not usually covered by their parents' plans. And because they are going back to school, it is harder to get health insurance.
Have you seen the documentary movie, Sicko? It shows how the United States really needs health care reform. It also shows the health care plans of other countries like Canada, France, and even Cuba. Here is the trailer from that movie:
I went to see this movie when it came out. It was great!
You can buy a used copy of Sicko from Amazon starting at only $3.50 and up plus shipping. Here is that link:
