Insurance 101: Confidently Navigate the Complex World of Health Insurance

This session will provide an overview of health insurance fundamentals and then build upon those to discuss the strategies Iowa State University has put in to place to help students and parents, such as: access and networks; uninsured and underinsured students; Medicaid; transparency efforts; sliding fee scales; and tools and resources the university offers to students and parents.
