I have recently graduated from University of Maryland. I am still on my OPT visa and I was wondering if I am eligible for insurance from this website? If yes, which one. Kindly advise

As a student on an OPT visa, you may consider our Short Term Plans. These plans are available for up to three months but you can continue to repurchase the policies again after 3 months. That being said, it is important to note that these policies do not fulfill the Obama Care regulation requirements so If you are planning to be in the U.S. on a long term basis, and pay taxes here, you may need to look into getting regular domestic insurance instead. Should you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us at support@visitorscoverage.com or 1-866-384-9104.
