I’m a college student enrolled in my college’s student health plan. Can I drop it and go to the health insurance Marketplace?

Yes. You may apply for premium tax credits and enroll in a health plan through the health insurance Marketplace, as long as you drop your student health plan before coverage begins through the Marketplace. (26 C.F.R. § 1.36B-2(b) and (c)).
