You either
1. Shop around through the gov platform (plans will be super expensive)
2. Go with out it
3. Leverage COBRA. It allows you extend your company’s health plan for some time but with you paying the full portion. Oh also if you even work 1 day of a month for your company they will have to pay their part of your premium. Which is why I resigned on the 2nd of July. So I had July covered. And I believe my university’s plan covered me for the entire month of august even though classes started mid August

Pay for private health insurance

Or get on your spouse/partner's

Or get on your parent's (as a dependent, if you are young enough)

You can ask your school to start the insurance earlier than the date on charts. They might have a work around!

Hi all - just got a Hamilton Khaki Field from whom I believe to be an authorized dealer. Included in the box is a 2 year warranty card with the 'watch reference' and 'serial number' listed as well as the AD name and address. The 'date of purchase' however was left blank. Is this normal / okay, especially considering the Hamilton website says "the warranty only comes into force if the warranty certificate is dated..."? First time buyer here so not sure what to expect. Thanks!
