Health insurance for adult son

What do people do for health insurance if they work part-time? For 43 years, my health insurance has been through my school. My son (31 years old) will be working part-time when things start opening up. Any suggestions? TIA!

We use a Christian healthcare sharing program. We use Samaritan Ministries, but MediShare and Christian Healthcare (?) work the same way.

Itís not insurance, but helps cover unplanned medical expenses.

We use it because insurance prices were too much when we were a single income family.

Message me if you have questions.

We have always paid for a private individual plan for my Dh and kids because it was too expensive to put them on my school plan. He works full time but his work doesnít have a company plan. Now it is figured as a bonus on top of his salaryóhis work pays a portion towards his monthly premiums, but we have the plan privately.

DS just turned 26 this month, and is off our insurance beginning 8/1. He got the cheapest Kaiser-Permanente individual coverage with a big deductible. He's healthy, we just wanted him insured in case of emergency, esp. during a pandemic. It also has an out of pocket limit of (I think) about $6,000.



He'll graduate grad school next June, and hopefully have a job for the next school year.
