Health care in the United States is very costly for anyone without health insurance, and a short hospital stay can cost thousands of dollars. It is therefore important to have health insurance. You can purchase insurance in your home country or in the United States. Even if you never need to use your health insurance, just having it will give you peace of mind.
If you experience a serious illness or accident, you cannot purchase health insurance after the fact to cover that illness or accident. Be sure to buy medical insurance. Travelers insurance does not usually cover medical expenses.
Costs for medical insurance vary between $500 and $600 and sometimes more per individual each year. MEDEX Insurance Services Inc. www.medexassist.com (1-800-240-0369) provides several benefits including return to your home country or a companion on the plane should you be too ill to travel alone. Compass International Student Insurance Plan is another plan which provides health benefits to international students. Visit them at www.compassstudenthealthinsurance.com.
If you are in the United States, and need additional information or an application, please stop by the English Language Center in room C-354.
