I've been accepted at UNC Kenan-Flagler and am planning to move from San Francisco to Chapel Hill with my wife in July. My wife is planning to quit her job and is hoping to find a new one in NC. My question is whether my wife will be covered by the health insurance provided by the university or whether we will need to buy separate insurance for her. Also, if we are to buy separate insurance for her during the period that she is not working (and hence not insured), is it typically available at the same rate as for students, or will it be higher?
Would really appreciate your responses on this. Thanks.
