Some institutions will require all their international students to buy school-sponsored insurance coverage (also known as 留学生保险) , while others will allow these students to purchase a plan of their own choosing. Regardless of the health insurance requirements that your school may have, be sure to remember that purchasing appropriate insurance is the only way to protect against unforeseen medical bills.
