Insurance worries

I’m starting my senior year at the University of Alabama this fall; frankly, I’ve been worried about health insurance for when I get out on my own since I was diagnosed my freshman year of high school. My career path is news media, or where ever I can get my foot in the door in the television industry. I’m now realizing from my internship that this business doesn’t usually have great insurance plans… If I decide to come back to the place where I’m interning, I’ll have United Health care. My doctor in Birmingham doesn’t even take patents with that insurance. Is anyone in the TV industry, and/or knows someone who is, that can point me in the right avenue for health coverage?
