Here are some details that needs your attention. Hundreds of thousands of International students come to the US annually to fulfil their dreams. Along with the University Course registration comes an important often ignored aspect, which is Student Health Insurance. Health Care is very expensive in the US and unless you have adequate student medical insurance, you can get into serious financial difficulty. In fact most Universities make it mandatory for International students to buy student health insurance plan. Quite often there is a college student plan which most students enroll, however these plans are quite expensive. The University provides a list of requirements for the student insurance plan, and students can also purchase student insurance plans outside of the College insurance option, as long as it satisfies the University requirement.
