  • Should students care about health care reform?

    Filed Under: Health Insurance
Most international students who enter the USA to pursue their education are stunned at how incredibly complex the health insurance system is. It doesn't help when they realize how costly it is too. No doubt the available health care is among the best in the world, but the cost and the complexity of it are still difficult to accept.

Most universities make it mandatory to have international student health insurance, most students buy it and do not bother about other available options and what else is happening all around.

The USA at the moment is on the verge of a never-before health care reform. Student participation in this reform is more important than ever. The reforms are directly going to influence you. At the end of it, the premiums might become higher or the quality of health care available might worsen. Things might become better than now too. Who knows? And who cares, right?

Well, you should know and you should care. It is going to influence your stay in the USA. It is good to contribute to the change, that might well change your life here. Commenting is not available in this channel entry.
