I'm just an idiot I suppose but I have strongly encouraged my sons who are in a similar situation to pay for health insurance. Then again one had a friend who had testicular cancer when they were seniors in college and they have both gotten to see the devastation of serious illness up close and personal over the past couple of years.

You're making my point for me.

Someone with $8,000 in assets who gets testicular cancer is going to be bankrupt at the end of his treatment whether he has health insurance or not.
