It is that time of the year when international students from around the globe come to the US to start their higher education or when US Students go overseas for an international education experience. International students the world over are busy during this period in making arrangements to come to the US or go to a foreign country.
One of the most important items required for a student to stay in a foreign country while they complete their studies is adequate Student Health Insurance. The US Universities will have an insurance plan that students can typically buy online from their website. However, Universities also allow students to buy health insurance plans outside the University as long as it satisfies university requirements for the insurance cover.
There are many US health insurance providers who offer plans for students and they are quite economically priced when compared to University plans. They are attractive as they satisfy most requirements that is listed by the University or college.
Liaison Student insurance plans have been recently updated in 2018 and are offered by Seven Corners providing excellent coverage for international students. Apart from the basic requirements that the student plans cover, these plans have coverage for vaccinations, maternity(conception must occur after 180 days of effective coverage),new born care coverage, non-contact amateur sports, coverage for hazardous activities, coverage for mental illness including alcohol and substance abuse, acute onset of pre-existing condition coverage, incidental trips to home country, coma benefit, spinal manipulations, physical therapy...
Coverage for vaccinations, hazardous activities, coma benefit, spinal manipulations are some of the unique benefits which are not very common among other student health insurance plans. This makes these plans more attractive among the international students. These plans are available for both US citizens and Non US citizens traveling outside their home country. However, the coverage might vary and the detail look at the benefits will make things clearer. Talking to insurance companies and licensed agents is always a good thing.
