I am Doctor

I didn’t realize how many college students didn’t have health insurance until a friend of mine told me his story.

So, Cairo took a trip with a couple of his buddies to Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island. He ventured a tad too close and inhaled large amounts of gaseous sulfur. Later in the day, his chest began to get extremely sore so he remedied it by taking Advil. Well, his buddies wanted to get drunk (typical party guys) and so Cairo joined the fun. He took his Advil with the alcohol (sure, not the smartest thing, and he admits it). Eventually, his stomach started getting sore, so not only was he having lung problems his stomach got messed up too. It’s hard not to feel bad for him. His doctors are now experimenting on him testing out different ways to cure him. I think he had to drink this mocha flavored colon cleanser. Aww, my poor buddy.

I also have a strange need to diagnose myself before seeking professional help, because who would know more about what’s going on than me? Often, I find it’s good to look up what’s wrong, but as for treatment, well, I’ll leave that for the professionals.

But, on a more serious note, here’s a link to the UH Student Medical Insurance Plan.

(http://kapiolani.hawaii.edu/object/healthinsurance.html) Pfft, wordpress won’t let me give you a link. Grrr, to them. Grrr.

To qualify for the student health insurance plans endorsed by UH, undergraduates must have a minimum of 6 credits during the fall or spring semesters and 3 credits during the summer sessions.
Students not taking classes during the summer may still qualify for coverage if they were enrolled in the previous spring semester and are registered for the following fall semester.
