Yeah, the healthcare premiums are a big deal, and the "regressive tax" analogy isn't a bad one. The M-Care plan falls more heavily on those with less flexible incomes (if you call your stipend that) - grad students with children see their premiums increase earlier and more sharply than single students. But things can be worse. I got my MA at a school in California whose insurance plan ONLY covered grad students (i.e., dependents were screwed). My ex-girlfriend in my program had to put her kids on Medicaid. So, life can be worse.
