20 years ago I practically begged my parents to stop covering me on their insurance and claiming me as a dependent on their tax returns. by giving up that 1000/year deduction they could have eliminated the university's assertion that they should be paying 6000/year towards my tuition (the family farm never profited more than 35K a year and there were 4 of us simultaneously in college during those years, with each institution wanting 5-6K from my parents) the insurance would have been the toughest piece to give up, if only this country would allow insurers to offer high deductible coverage for hospitalization a very reasonable plan could bridge the 18-early 30s window stop saving for their education, cut the cord
