  • Considering Studying in the U.S.? Don’t Forget International Insurance

    Filed Under: Health Insurance
If you're considering expanding your academic experience by spending a summer studying in the U.S., you're making a wise choice. Universities across the U.S. offer excellent programs in all disciplines, ranging from medicine to engineering and everything in between. And in addition to learning about your course of study from world class professors, you'll learn about life by challenging yourself in a new culture. As you make your preparations, be sure that your checklist doesn't only include your visa, passport, and plane tickets; you'll also want to be sure to purchase international student insurance.

In the event of an injury or illness, international student insurance can save you lots of money. You see, while you may have an insurance policy in your native country, it likely won't apply to events occurring in the U.S. (or other foreign countries for that matter). So you'll be left to pay for any medical care you need out of your own pocket, which can be quite pricey.

International student insurance will cover the majority of the costs of your health care services, saving you hundreds and possibly even thousands of dollars. The last thing you want while studying in the U.S. is to incur costly medical bills. And you can avoid this with low-cost student insurance.

Keep your mind where it should be - on your studies - not on how you can afford medical coverage should you need it. With international student insurance you'll have easy access to affordable high-quality healthcare during your stay in the U.S. Hopefully you'll never need it, but if you do, international student insurance will make sure it's there.
