  • Show Your Smarts with Proper Student Insurance

If you’re a student in the United States, resolve to pay attention to your international student insurance plan this semester. Although the U.S. government does not have any restrictions or requirements for F-1 visa holders, it does have some requirements for J-1 visa holders.

However, your university will have some prerequisites for student insurance. Your university will also offer an insurance plan that covers most major medical expenses, including mental health coverage. If you are looking for alternate private insurance, pay attention to the following benefits which you might not otherwise.

Mental health coverage: Remember that mental health care is extremely expensive in the United States. Although mental health may not be something you pay attention to in your home country, it assumes importance when you are away from home. This is especially true if you live in the northern part of the country where winters can be long and depressing.

Coverage outside the city of residence: Most insurance plans offered by your college or university feature extremely limited options for coverage outside the city of residence and outside the plan’s PPO network. You will be visiting friends and family outside of your city and you will need to be covered adequately. Be smart and ensure that your insurance actually comes in handy.
