This is always a subject of controversy, along with such topics as tax deductibility and tighty wities.
Don't want to know about the tighty wities but what is the controversy over tax deductibility??
This is from the Academy website:
Q: Sould we continue coverage under our family insurance?
A: It is a good idea to continue family medical coverage for your student. While they remain students they are of course covered for all medical issues by the Navy Tricare system, but if they leave for any reason (especiially medical
), it can be a problem to get the family coverage to pick them back up. Pre-exiting conditions might not be covered under a new policy and this has been an issue for some unfortunate families.
Many homeowner policies do not cover loss of personal property on a Military Base. Since USNA is a base, it is a good idea to get insurance coverage for their personal belongings. USAA offers a very inexpensive policy. Call them at 1-800-292-856 for information. But first check with your homeowners insurance to see if your Mid is already covered.
