  1. Hopefully my question makes sense! I'm an American and have only just realized it's nearly impossible to get health insurance coverage as a 30-year-old student with a pre-existing condition (although it's stabilized.) From what I'm reading, the Basistarif is an option, but I'm not 100% clear on if this is both very expensive and provides adequate coverage, or just expensive. To be honest, it is still cheaper than going to school in the US would be. I was wondering if a possible work around would be to work for 1-2 years (or more? Not sure if there's an established rule) first, which would allow me to get public coverage - but would that coverage be upheld if I decided to become a student? How easy is it for public insurance to be revoked? Would really appreciate any guidance. This is something I've been working towards for a long time and am very crushed to realize it might not come to fruition. Contacted a couple of brokers known on the forum so going that route, as well.
