No sportsperson can avoid injuries on the field forever (unless we consider board games too). They say - if you have never injured yourself, you probably haven't played hard enough. The real fun of sports is in how fast you can recover and bounce back after an injury. Having said that, a sports injury will still need health care, which will include expenses payable to a doctor, a hospital and a pharmacist. A little precaution in the form of a health insurance policy (and don't forget the sports rider) can go a long way in taking care of these unavoidable medical expenses.

If you are a foreign student studying in the USA, and often participate in athletic and sports events, a health insurance policy is all the more essential for you. Health care expenditure is quite high in the USA, and an injury followed by extended care might well upset your budget.

If you participate in contact sports like football or ice hockey, or athletic events like sprinting or long/high jumping, you would already be aware of the chances of an injury happening any time. Why take a chance?

A health insurance policy specially designed with the needs of international students in mind is always a good idea. Let health care expenditure be the last thing on your mind while you go for that medal, or that long-standing elusive record. Get health insurance, play without worries.
