  • Don’t wait, insure your health now

    Filed Under: Health Insurance
International students planning to start their education in the USA need to collect and/or furnish a lot of documents from/to lots of different places. Starting from education certificates from their country, SAT/GRE/GMAT scores, applications to various schools, a passport, visa, travel documents, travel insurance, and a whole set of other documents. Life seems to be sinking in loads of paper, but the prospect of higher education in some of the best universities in the world makes this phase enjoyable, rather than terrible.

Now, when so much is happening, work has to be prioritized. Obviously all aspects related to admission and travel will be top on the list. But, something equally important i.e. international students health insurance gets postponed.

Waiting to get insurance is definitely not advisable. Health care being as costly as it is in the USA and health itself being as unpredictable as it is, it is a good idea to buy insurance as early as you can. Preferably before reaching the States.

These medical policies are created especially for the needs of young students, and often offer a great mix of low premiums and a good coverage. If you have to buy insurance any case, why wait? Insure your health now. Commenting is not available in this channel entry.
