I am planning to study in Germany in near future. I do not know whether it is compulsory for international student to do medical insurance or not. I have heard that it is compulsory to do medical insurance? Is it true? If yes, then should I do my health insurance before leaving my country or I can do it after I reach Germany? What are the procedures and charges for foreigners to do health insurance? Can anybody suggest me please?
Yes, medical or health insurance is must for international students to study in Germany. You'll have to present your health insurance certificate to get registered into German university as student. You'll need to have your health insured from German insurance company. In some cases, the insurance done at your home country may also work.
Information about documents required and procedures for insurance can be obtained from insurance company in Germany. The average cost for health insurance in Germany will be around 30-55 Euros per month. However the cost may vary. There are many insurance companies so there will not be problem in finding insurance company but you'll surely have problem in choosing one for you.

Everyone planning to study in Germany is required to have health insurance, and you cannot be enrolled without it.Students under the age of 30 or until their 14th academic semester can take out the public health insurance, or you can choose to opt out for a private health insurance. You can find further information on medical insurance in Germany on the website of the DAAD.
