International Student Medical Insurance

You may be wondering: Do I need health insurance as an international student? The answer is a resounding yes!

International student health insurance in the USA should be purchased by all international students before they register for classes. Many schools/universities provide their own student health insurance. However, some of them provide you a choice to purchase an alternate international student medical insurance plan as long as such insurance meets the minimum requirements set by a particular school. 

Which health insurance is best for international students? That depends upon your school's and your own requirements. You are encouraged to do a thorough international student insurance review to compare and find the best plan for your needs. 

You are free to buy such international student medical insurance from any place of your choice as long as it meets the requirements. In order to prove that you have purchased compliant student medical insurance, most schools have the compliance form that must be filled and submitted to the school after the purchase.
