The US has a privatized, for-profit health-care system. Health insurance is highly recommended for the international student who wishes to study in the US.
Your university or college may offer a health care plan for domestic and international students alike, or they may have particular arrangements for international students. You should discuss this with your university or college at the earliest opportunity. If your school does not offer health care arrangements, there are a number of companies that offer health insurance tailored specifically for international students.
