The fact that medical insurance is a great idea, has nothing to do with how much you earn. Yes, you should carry medical insurance. I'd suggest you pick up a second job.

With most people who are young and healthy, to pay for health insurance makes no sense.
But here is where the problem is, that with most young people may not get sick, but they have accidents, that could land them in the ER, ($1,000 to $5,000) or may need surgery which could cost of upwards of $10,000 to $25,000.
Your shoulder keeps popping and able to put back in place, but what if you can’t and the doctor suggest shoulder surgery. Or if in an auto accident, or break a arm/leg playing sports with friends?
That is what health insurance is for, the big stuff, not doctor visits.

It's when you don't have it that you find you suddenly need it. And suffer for it.
There's no way to tell what might happen in the future. Protect yourself, or you could end up very sorry & very financially devastated - when you are not financially healthy to begin with.
Your mom is very smart, very astute.

$50 every 2 weeks is very cheap for any medical coverage. Your choice is to go on your parents' insurance or go to a county clinic to see a doctor if you get sick. They charge a fee.

Yes. If you have to go to the hospital or you have to get surgery, and you do not already have insurance, then it would probably cost over $10,000 and might cost over a million dollars. Paying $50 each pay period is much cheaper.

Pay the insurance, you never know when an accident or serious medical problem will happen.
