Health Insurance!

Along with the list of 534545 other things that need to be done before orientation (JULY 11TH!!), I need to obtain health insurance! AAAH. I have never had health insurance, so I really don't even know where to begin. I looked at my school's health insurance and it said "The annual premium for both domestic and international students will be $1196.00," so I am guess about $100 a month. Is this too expensive? Is this cheap?

Does anyone know of any resources where I could potentially get health insurance that really doesn't cover anything, but just to satisfy this requirement?

HELP ME!!

I Googled "health insurance Florida" and found this link, maybe it will help:

Out here in California, we have Blue Cross/Blue Shield and Kaiser Permanente that offer reasonable rates for basic coverage, but I'm not sure if they operate in Florida.

Thank you for the links!
I found one site and it gaves me quotes. I found some insurance for $40 a month, which basically covers..um, NOTHING, but I just need it so I have the card to show my school.
