Millions of look forward to the day we get to venture out on our own. Or at least sort-of on our own. College life may not exactly be the "real world," but it's definitely a step in the right direction. Since we're leaving the shelter of mom and dad's roof, no longer eating meals for free, and likely having to take up residence in a dorm or apartment, it's imperative to ponder financial issues. Oh, and let's not forget about insurance coverage. Only a fool would head out on his/her own without medical and dental insurance. Life comes at you quick, and is far too unpredictable not to be prepared ahead of time. And for those who're taking off to some foreign neck of the woods, you'll be glad to know that international student health insurance is available for those who qualify. It's time to prepare for that next step in life.
Let's say you went off to Paris, France to attend some fancy fashion design school. I've heard this spiel plenty of times in my own home simply because I have a teenage daughter that loves clothing. I'm sure many parents can relate. So you you're wondering the streets of Paris, minding your own business, when suddenly some guy on a scooter nails you. OUCH. It may sound funny, but I actually saw it happen while visiting Taiwan. This is the time that international student health insurance would come in handy. You could proceed to the nearest emergency room and get all fixed up. No worries; your international student health insurance plan is taking care of it. On the other hand, what if you had no medical coverage? How in the world would you afford to pay the emergency room fees and so on? As you should already be aware of, hospitals charge an arm and a leg. if you can't pay, they just might take one of yours. Okay, that last part was a joke. Then again, I'm not sure about foreign countries. Fortunately for you, affordable international student health insurance can be provided by the federal government. This is one of the perks of being a student.
