Enroll in Health Insurance for Fall

Health InsuranceDid you know that the US has the most expensive health care in the world? Seeking treatment at a hospital could cost you thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars! Since the US doesn’t have national health insurance, you will be expected to have your own private health insurance plan or to pay for any medical bills you incur. Because of this, it’s important to plan ahead. If you are in the US, or planning to study in the US, be sure to get your health insurance which can start the same day you purchase it!
