  • Tailor Your OPT Insurance to Your Needs

    Filed Under: Health Insurance


This is the perfect time to start looking for OPT opportunities—and with that comes the thought of OPT insurance. While it may be too early to purchase OPT insurance now, it is good to know more about the options out there, as also the best deal for your needs.

As with any insurance plan, the best insurance for Peter may not be the best insurance for Mary. So, decide on what your insurance needs are, and then go about looking for the best coverage and price that you are most comfortable with.

OPT insurance plans are generally short-term insurance plans. That means that they cover unplanned and unscheduled medical conditions. All emergencies and illnesses are covered, and most plans also include some sort of accidental death and dismemberment benefit.

Some of the factors you might take into consideration when selecting a plan include the length of coverage, the affordability of the plan, whether your college offers any plans at a subsidized rate, and the state of your health. Online comparison sites are a great way to compare different insurance plans.
