If you aren’t covered by student insurance or by that of a parent or partner, you may be eligible through the Affordable Care Act, which has open enrollment from Nov. 1, 2021, through Jan. 22, 2022. The United Way has healthcare navigators to help you apply for ACA health insurance, explore coverage options, and identify new cost savings for which you may qualify.
