  • Benefits of an international health insurance

    Filed Under: Health Insurance
International student health insurance is mandatory in many universities, and essential in most other cases. Staying covered during your stay in an international university will bring you many benefits, piece of mind being the most important one.

Cheap: It is very affordable, whether you buy the default one-plan-suits-all policy from your university or by doing research and customizing the policy as per your bespoke needs. In fact the monthly premium is cheaper in most cases that a single consultation fee paid to the doctor.

Easy to buy: You can buy a policy in 10 minutes online, by keying in very few details. The coverage, in most cases, starts immediately and documents can be downloaded right away. You can even compare policies from various providers, customize by adding and removing features as per your needs and get all details from one point portal.

Easy to file claims: Should you fall ill or be in an emergency that needs you to process claims, international student medical plans are very useful. If you are in a PPC, you don’t have to do anything other than show your insurance card. Elsewhere, you can easily file claims by regular mail, by phone, by email or online.
