What do I need to know about Health Insurance in the U.S.?
Many colleges and universities have health insurance plans for their students. According to a recent independent study, larger U.S. schools have better international student insurance programs than smaller schools.
If health insurance is not provided, the International Student Office at your new institution will help you find a suitable plan that fits your needs or visit International Student Insurance for more information.
Several private companies offer insurance plans specifically designed for international students. The quality of these programs varies, so request advice from the on-campus International Student Office and other international students, especially students who have had experience with insurance claims.
