No matter where in the world you are studying, if you are not studying in your country of origin, you need foreign student insurance to protect you against a variety of risks. Most colleges that accept international students also require international student health insurance. But, what are the benefits, coverage and features of such an insurance policy?
• An international insurance policy will cover the costs of all prescription drugs
• Insurance for foreign students covers dental fees in exceptional cases. Only certain insurers include dental coverage in their insurance products.
• Evacuation medical services are also included in an international health insurance policy. In this case it works like repatriation insurance.
• The costs involved by visiting the doctor, being admitted to a hospital or any other clinical expenses are covered by foreign student insurance policies.
• All emergency services such as medical or ambulance services are included in the policy.
• Foreign student health insurance covers costs triggered by accidental death, dismemberment, and repatriation of remains.
