  • Why Do I Need Foreign Student Insurance?

    Filed Under: Health Insurance

You’re a US citizen enrolled in university or college in a modern European city. Or you’re a foreign student about to start your course in the US. Your university accommodation is safe and clean, your new city is developed and equipped with all the best medical facilities. You’re healthy and young – seriously, what are the chances of something bad happening while you’re studying? Do you really need foreign student insurance? The short answer is yes. For the longer answer, consider the following advice:

Foreign student insurance covers you for the unexpected – the things you would never think of happening, such as a car accident when you’re on vacation, a set of cracked ribs or a broken tooth. You may be young and healthy but unfortunately accidents do happen, especially when you’re in an unfamiliar city.

Foreign student health insurance protects you if you run out of luck with your health and suffer a serious or long-term illness. Think about how you would afford a stay in hospital in a country where medical care costs big.

Your plan can meet your needs and help ease your particular worries, from dental care to maternity benefits and surgery. You’re not restricted and you shouldn’t feel constricted by a foreign student insurance plan – it can fit around your life.
