Health insurance is essential for international students who have just completed their graduation. There is no government sponsored health insurance coverage available for international students. The US schools offer health insurance coverage for F1 students and mandate it while the student is on campus, but this is necessarily true for students while on OPT.
Student insurance plans offered on this website are most useful, as these plans are more affordable when compared to University mandated plans which are usually exorbitant. OPT health insurance plans offered by private insurance companies can be compared and bought online at American Student Insurance.
