It could vary by state, but I BELIEVE under the Health Care Reform, parents can carry their "dependents" up to the age of 26 regardless of student/employment status.
Here is a link to the department of labor website.

Depends completley on the insurance you and/or your parents have. I was covered no problem, others are not.

It really depends on your insurance. I want to say i'm covered under my parents while I'm enrolled in school. My school has in internship course (no credits) that I signed up for, bacsically it just held my place as a student and proved to the insurance that I was still enrolled, even if i wasn;t on campus taking classes.

The best bet? Leave it alone and hope you don't get sick.
But with the Reform over 90% of people under 26 are still covered on their parents insurance. So unless you have some small home town insurance you're good.

No, if you're under 26 you can be on your parents plan. It was part of the health reform

Under the Reform, pretty much any and every health insurance plan will keep you covered under your parents until age 26, regardless of if you are in school or not!
