Study abroad insurance primarily provides emergency medical expenses while studying abroad as well as emergency medical evacuation and many other benefits.
Study abroad insurance may be comprised of various benefits, some of these standard benefits include:
More than the students, parents may be worried that their child who is going to study abroad may fall ill or may get injured in an unfamiliar foreign location. This benefit would pay for eligible expenses if you were to become sick or injured while on a trip. Many students are already covered through their parents' health insurance but such insurance may either provide limited coverage or no coverage outside the U.S. In any case, that insurance would be subject to higher deductibles, higher coinsurance and higher out of pocket maximums.
While the student is studying abroad, and if his/her grandparent passes away at home, for example, he would have to interrupt his trip and make travel arrangements to return home earlier. This benefit would help pay for such additional expenses incurred in making necessary travel arrangements.
For parents, there is nothing more frightening than their child getting seriously sick or injured in a remote location and proper medical facilities not even being available there. Fortunately, this benefit will provide transportation to the nearest medical facility where adequate care can be given. Once the person is stable to fly long distance, this benefit may also pay to return them back to their home country.
This benefit, sometimes called a bedside visit, would pay for a parent to be by the child's side if he/she became seriously sick or were injured while on a trip. It is really comforting to know you could be by your child's side at the time when he/she needs you the most.
While most insurance plans may provide sports activity coverage at additional cost, some plans may not charge anything extra. Many students studying abroad engage in activities such as parasailing, bungee jumping, snow skiing and so on. It is always advisable to check the policy details to make sure the activity you are planning to participate in is covered.
This benefit provides coverage in case of accidental death or loss of one or multiple limbs in an accident. A lump sum benefit amount is paid to the beneficiary.
Many study abroad insurance plans provide additional valuable benefits such as ID theft assistance, emergency cash transfer, emergency prescription drugs refill, natural disaster relief and so on. Such benefits vary based on the specific insurance plan.
Studying abroad can be fulfilling and exciting.
