Georgia Health Insurance Broker McCart Insurance Discusses Common Dorm Illnesses

McCart Insurance wants college students to understand the common illnesses they face in the dormitory.

    NORCROSS, GA, November 06, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Georgia health insurance broker McCart Insurance knows that going away to college can lead to home sickness, but that's not the biggest concern that dormitory residents face. Every year, college students face upper respiratory infections, stomach flu, conjunctivitis and mononucleosis. Some even face meningitis.

The common thread of these dorm illnesses is that they are virus spread through human contact. While some, like the flu, are most often just an inconvenience, some dorm illnesses can be very dangerous to someone without a Georgia health insurance plan. Mononucleosis and meningitis carry long recovery periods and sometimes require hospitalization, just one more reason that college students should look for an affordable health insurance plan.

Most individual health insurance plans include both preventative medicine, like immunizations to help avoid these illnesses, and doctor's visits so that students can get help as soon as they start getting sick. When faced with these and other dorm illnesses, students need to check their Georgia health insurance plans to find out what kind of coverage they have. Waiting until they are sick enough to have to go to an emergency room may cost them significantly in money and missed school.

To avoid contracting dorm illnesses, students should take basic precautions including washing their hands often and avoiding other students who are ill.

Alicia McCart, CEO, recommends that students check on their insurance coverage before they get sick. "Once you are already sick, it can be hard to keep straight what your policy covers. Getting insurance while you are well, can help alleviate the financial concerns of a serious illness."
