USA as the destination for higher education !

Over 100,000 Indian students enrol in US universities annually. This makes it the second largest international student community after Chinese student community. The United States remains the most attractive destination for Indian students wanting an overseas education. The reasons are self evident, there are more than 4000 institutions that offer undergraduate, masters and doctorate degrees in many different specializations. The USA education system has strong academic & social environment which fosters both academic, professional and personal development of individuals. Students get to interact with some of the best teachers and researchers in different fields. There is no country which can offer similar state of the art research facilities for student leaning toward research and Doctorates.
Students who are working towards engineering and management degrees find the US most attractive given the employment opportunities that an US degree offers. Along with the academic aspect, the US government is making it easy for Indian students to stay and work in the US after completing their studies. The student visa (F1 visa) allows student to work in the US under the OPT program. All of this makes the US a very attractive destination for higher education.

The need for student health Insurance while studying in USA

Getting admission in an American college requires a lot of work, and not this is not just in terms of academics. There is a lot of paperwork, starting from University admission forms to Government visa applications. However there is one essential document that students often overlook—a student insurance policy.

The student insurance policy offered by TATA AIG combines the best of both a medical insurance plan and a regular travel policy. The TATA AIG Studentguard plan covers the students travel to and from India to the US as well as all medical exigencies in the US. Given the extremely high cost of healthcare in the US, medical insurance is indispensable as the cost of medical treatment in an US hospital can be forbidding.

TATA AIG’s International Student Guard Health insurance – Ideal for USA

Student medical insurance is compulsory in most US universities and colleges. However, many of the Indian students going overseas to study are not aware of this. When they do realise the need, they have to buy an insurance policy from the university. This can be more expensive, in most cases almost thrice the price of the TATA AIG Studentguard plan. While the price is very attractive, what makes TATA AIG Studentguard more compelling in the US is that TATA AIG works with AIA and United Healthcare as the carrier in the US. Students are dealing with an US customer support team and getting coverage in US Dollars, even though they have purchased the policy in Indian rupees.
