  • Parents Visiting You for the First Time

    Filed Under: Health Insurance
For a graduate or PhD student studying or conducting research at a university in the United States, vacations are hard to come by. Homesickness is not. The next best thing that can be done is to ask your parents to visit you. While they are here consider purchasing Travel Insurance for the duration of their stay(and a little over for the possibility of airline delays).

While it is exciting to host and entertain your parents when they visit from overseas, it is also important if not necessary to purchase health insurance for them. The long and exhausting flight experience and differences in climate and weather often take a toll on one’s health. Dealing with an ill parent in a foreign country is oftentimes stressful and expensive.

Travel Insurance guarantees to take care of your parents if and when they fall ill while visiting the United States. Pick and choose through numerous health care plans, until you find what is best for you.

All International Student Travel Insurance plans provide coverage for medical expenses (hospital, doctors, X-Rays), prescription drugs, repatriation, and medical evacuation. Some health insurance plans even provide coverage for pre-existing conditions.
