Insurance during OPT

Postby KOvalle » Wed, 09 Jan 2008 08:19:18 -0500


I'm on an F-1 visa. I graduated on 12/14/07 and I applied for OPT on 11/01/07. I haven't found a job or received my OPT card yet, but my student insurance expiration date is not very far...

Do I need to purchase new coverage? Thank you in advance for your time!

Yes, you will need to make sure you are covered. Check when you expiration date is of your current plan and then purchase cover starting from that date to make sure you have no lapse in benefits
