As a student you do not have to pay anything for health and long-term care insurance if you are covered by your parents’, spouse’s or civil partner’s non-contributory dependants’ insurance. You must take out your own insurance if you are not (or no longer) eligible for cover through non-contributory dependants’ insurance.
