    I was wondering, is it possible for midshipmen to get dental braces?

    Could someone explain to me how the USNA insurance works?
    My BGO said "stay healthy until I-day;" what happens if you get injured during Plebe Summer? What is the cutoff line between "go home, apply next year" and "dont worry"?

    If an appointee receives a debilitating injury before induction, it may mean the appointment is rescinded. Any medical occurance post-induction, assuming it is not a condition that would disallow commissioning, it is deal with it ...surgeries, broken bones, sprains, etc. ...become issues dealth with as Mids. Again, any medical situation that is deemed a game-changer, even post-induction, can lead to separation.

    At USNA, traditionally there have been no deferments, if one is not medically/physically 100% on I Day. Thus ...the "stay healthy" counsel, which is most worthy.

    Re: insurance, generally, it seems most folks retain their Mids on their insurance throughout the USNA years that Mids might retain healthcare coverage in the unlikely event they are separated prior to graduation.

    Now that Obamacare tells us they can stay on mama's policy until 26? Who knows. It's virgin territory.
