  • Quality health care outside the American borders

    Filed Under: Health Insurance
Sending your son/daughter for higher studies in a university in some far away foreign country? Happy about his/her academic prospects? Sad at having to miss them? Worried about how they will live alone, so far away? Well, it sure brings up many mixed feelings.

When your children are in the USA, they are usually covered by the family's health care coverage or if they are full time students, they have a student insurance policy. But, when an American student goes overseas for studies, it is important (and sometimes even mandatory) to buy some form of foreign student insurance.

It takes care of many unexpected medical expenses, and provides easy access to health care facilities. Foreign student insurance has a wide range of coverage including emergency treatment away from home, hospitalization and medical expenses, maternity benefits, dental fees, prescription drugs coverage, evacuation, repatriation (return of mortal remains to home country) and much more.

Health care expenditure is unpredictable; and it is safe to stay covered for situations when immediate and good quality health care is needed. Equip the student with foreign student insurance, and send them abroad with peace of mind. Commenting is not available in this channel entry.
