Insurance After Graduation
It is important that you maintain medical insurance coverage after you graduate, as medical expenses in the U.S. can be very costly. You should research individual plans through companies that insure international students in the U.S.
- F-1 students: While working under OPT, you may receive insurance through your employer; however, it is very common to have a gap in insurance coverage between the student plan’s end date and potential coverage through an employer.
- J-1 students: It is a regulatory requirement that you maintain insurance coverage for the duration of your stay.
