  • Broad Student Insurance Against Illness Abroad

    Filed Under: Blogging
    Author: Blog Writer
A recent study by the Institute of International Education indicates that the percentage of students taking up study abroad programs is increasing. While it’s a very heartening trend, students must be aware of foreign student insurance details before embarking on their trip.

As a first step, check with your study abroad office whether your current insurance will cover your stay abroad, and if so, the level of coverage. Remember to factor in changes in weather, temperature, and the kind of studies you will be doing. If you are going to be doing wildlife research in Africa, for instance, you may want to check for infectious diseases and other special coverage.

Remember to check the price of the college coverage, and compare it with other foreign insurance plans available. Get to know details of international health insurance plans before signing up for one.

Also connect with international students from your destination country to get a feel of the country. Is it flu season? Can you get painkillers over the counter? Also speak with study abroad scholars of earlier years. Did insurance actually work at the destination? Be better informed to tackle a new culture with a healthy mind and body!
