  • Students Dreaming of a Sunny Winter Break

Come November, and international students are dreaming of winter break. Many students have already booked tickets, and are looking forward to meeting their cousins/friends/spouses/significant others who live elsewhere in the United States. In all the excitement, students sometimes forget how their international student insurance plan works.

Many college-sponsored plans work only within a specified geographic area. Some plans also have different terms for out-of-network healthcare providers. However, most other plans have a wide network and offer coverage anywhere in the United States. If you are a student, quickly check the coverage with a simple phone call.

Also remember some basic rules when traveling within the United States. While drunk driving may not attract much attention in many countries, U.S. law takes a serious view of the offence. If you are in an accident, and are deemed under the influence of alcohol, your insurance will not pay up.

Some international student insurance plans offer coverage in all countries other than the home country of the student, and if planning a trip to Canada, you may still be covered. Remember to always carry your student ID and your student insurance card with you when traveling.
