OPT Participants in the U.S.

The following plans from our carefully selected partners are available to international students participating in Optional Practical Training (OPT). Recent graduates often find themselves without coverage after graduation when their student health insurance plan ends and before their employee benefits begin when starting a new job. While your university may no longer require you to carry insurance once you've graduated, it's still very important to always maintain adequate medical coverage for the duration of your stay in the U.S. Each of the plans below provide coverage for unexpected accidents and sicknesses that might occur, along with the flexibility to choose the length of coverage needed as well as benefit and deductible options to keep premium costs low. 

Using the links below, you can view more information about each plan, get a quote, and enroll quickly and easily right online.
