                               Pro-tip: ASU loves it when students work for free.

  • ACA allows an 80/20 rule, which means that health insurance companies are required to spend at least 80% of your premium on healthcare.


  • Under your parents’ health insurance, you will now be covered until your 26th birthday.


  • Insurers can no longer deny you based on genetic predisposition or pre-existing conditions.


  • There are no more “lifetime” dollar limits. So if you have one heck of a Spring Break, you’ll be guaranteed coverage (if you have health insurance).
