Health Insurance - Ask MHG
Uh-oh, where’d my health cover go?
As the boat show season is now in full swing, one thing that you may not think about as you try to land a 1st mate position on a fancy new Feadship, is that when you walk off the job you may also lose your health insurance. If you have your own plan, no worries, but if you were under the vessel’s group plan, it is time to act fast before the National Marine BBQ party! Get set up with your own full-time plan or at the very least get a temporary travel plan in place so that you don’t go without coverage. You’re young (or at least young at heart) and you’re healthy; don’t wait to try to get coverage after one or both of those qualifications changes! It’s easy, it’s affordable, and you owe it to yourself to make sure you are protected.
Stay Safe out there!
