Student Health Cover in the USA

Healthcare is a rather expensive affair in the USA. Without insurance, unfortunately, if you fall sick, you will incur a huge cost on treatment. Unless you are covered by the insurance of your spouse’s employer or a similar arrangement, consider purchasing a good plan based on your health and your activities.

International students going to the USA on F1 visa are not mandated by the government to have a health cover. However, the school you are enrolling in would mostly mandate it. In rare cases, even if your school doesn’t require you to have insurance, it is still recommended you purchase one.
