  • Filing health insurance claims - Part 1

    Filed Under: Health Insurance
Having health insurance coverage is a vital part of living and studying in the USA. We all realize how costly health care can be in USA, and it makes all the more sense for an international student to stay covered. Tuitions and other living expenses are high enough, and no one needs the additional financial burden of medical bills on oneself when a health insurance policy can take care of it.

After having taken the decision of buying health insurance, one needs to be also aware of how exactly to file a claim when the need arises. It is best to know your policy well before-hand so that if you would ever need to use it in an emergency, you already know the process of filing a claim.

Part 2 deals with some terms that you need to know for a clearer understanding of the process. Read on to know more. Commenting is not available in this channel entry.
