In response to no0bs, he's probably from Canada so he doesn't have current health coverage, so it doesnt "look" like anything.
And yea buying insurance SUCKS. America = Fail. I usually just go get it from my bank. I bank with TD. I've never been for more than a week so its usually $20-35. Hope that helps. Btw if your mom or dad has a good job you might already be covered, or a sick credit card, so check that out first.
