 Did you know that with just a small gap in health insurance coverage, it is possible to be denied full coverage right way through an employer plan? It is important to have medical coverage while job searching, waiting for employer benefits to begin or while attending grad school.  There are amazing health and financial benefits available through Trinity's Alumni Association. Check out www.newgradzone.com to learn more about plans designed to help protect you as you transition into your new life.
