  • Why International Students Need The Study Abroad Program Insurance Plan

    Filed Under: Health Insurance

While the idea of traveling to a different country to study is commendable, it’s not a good idea to leave home without any kind of insurance. Through the study abroad insurance, parents can feel more at ease allowing their child to move to a different country with the additional insurance as part of their safety net.

Some of the main features of the ‘Study Abroad Program’ are medical coverage of up to half a million dollars, and maximum repatriation coverage of $50,000. Most international students will need these two insurance coverage more than any other. For one, they probably won’t have sufficient funds to cover major medical emergencies. Also, with too many natural disasters happening in all parts of the globe, parents need to know that their child can easily hop on a first plane out to get to safety.

It wouldn’t be fair for both child and parent to deny the right to study and pursue higher learning. It would be a tragedy to pass up this opportunity of a lifetime because of the innumerable life experiences that will help mold growth and maturity. Furthermore, it will shape him into the kind of person who is aware that there is a world beyond his neighborhood.

As a matter of fact, by allowing the child to become an international student, parents are ensuring that their child has a higher chance of succeeding after graduation. This is because of the immense amount of exposure he will get from being in a different culture without family to prop him up all the time.
