  • Benefits of International Student Medical Insurance

    Filed Under: Health Insurance

It is inconceivable that an individual studying abroad would not consider international student medical insurance. Given the increased medical risks people are confronted with when living and studying in a foreign country, international medical cover is not a luxury, but an absolute necessity that could spare you a lot of headaches and reduce your financial burden. Here are some of the most appreciated benefits of foreign student medical covers:

• You can have medical insurance for almost any given period of time, from just five days to a year or more. This makes the medical insurance for students a very flexible type of cover.
• Student insurance plans offer some of the lowest premium rates and you can also benefit from appreciable discounts.
• The insurance for students covers prescription drugs, as well as visits to the doctor and other medical-related costs.
• Pre-existing conditions are also covered, which is not something you get in common insurance products.
• Sports risks are covered by international student medical insurance and that is a huge advantage given the dynamics of a student’s life.
