Student Health insurance in the US

Postby indigo-dreams » Mon, 08 Feb 2010 12:17:59 -0500

Hi everyone!

I have been looking to get some health insurance but am pretty lost... :roll:

I mainly want a plan that covers basic GP visits, GYN visits and tests, and prescription coverage/discount.

Of course being on a student visa the whole 'shipping your body back to your country' and all that morbid stuff must be covered too :lol: but generally what I want is really simple, I have no medical history and I'm not sick! But all the insurance websites make it sound so complicated. I'm looking to pay around $70 or less a month or a reasonable annual sum.

So if you have a plan you would like to recommend or refer me too, or help me know where to start :P I would greatly appreciate it!

Please and Thanks!

automatically enroll you in an insurance plan since coverage is not mandatory. Additionally, the cost of health services, examinations, and prescription medication is much more expensive than what you may be accustomed to. It is not uncommon for an emergency visit to add up to thousands of dollars.

The best way to get insurance would be that you should enroll yourself in some insurance company which gives health and other kinds of insurance facilities. There are also many banks which provide such kinds of insurance facilities.

Hi! I do like to go with the topic. Really it is very important to start this type of service. Student health care is so important to increase the quality of education. And I do feel for increasing of the quality of education. We cannot forget that education is the backbone of a nation and students are the asset of a country so we need to give emphasis on students. I think there having a lot of education service provider community and is the best of here to give you help concerning essay writing, custom writing, termpaper writing, research paper writing etc.
