What is Student Medical Insurance for an International Student?

Most universities require their international students have student medical insurance (also known as student health insurance). A lot of universities will offer their international students a health insurance option as well.

  • However, many universities do not require that their international students use the university’s health insurance option.
  • This allows international students the ability to choose among private options, which may be cheaper than the university plan.
  • There are options for cheap international student health insurance.

One of our partners, TaiAn Financial, is a private option. We’d be happy to connect you to TaiAn to see if they have an option that will fit your university and your visa type, J1 visa or F1 visa. For more information about TaiAn Financial, see our latest blog post about them.
