Hundreds of thousands of students and faculty travel internationally each year, which is why “Student Travel Insurance” plans are so important.
Are you a U.S. student traveling to China for a semester, the entire school year, or maybe several years? Or are you an International Student from China traveling to the U.S. for education? If so you will need to look into an International Health insurance policy which will cover you regardless of where you are for your medical expenses if in an accident or become ill while outside your country of residence.
Most colleges and Universities will try to sell you their own health policy which typically requires the student to visit the school clinic for most of your care instead of being able to see private licensed physicians and specialists of your choice. A true International Health Insurance policy like GeoBlue allows you to see any doctor or hospital worldwide and any of the “Blue Card” doctors in the U.S. which is nearly 90% of all doctors Nationwide.
To protect against unforeseen events that could result in long-term financial hardship, GeoBlue has established a medical travel insurance program to fit the needs of international students, teachers and faculty.
Many people falsely believe that their existing American health insurance policy will cover them worldwide. This is not usually the case. Confirm what coverage, if any, your current insurer provides in China. Likewise for a person coming to America from another country, in most situations you will need an International/Travel health policy in place when you arrive to the U.S.
Whether you are a foreign national studying in the United States for several years or a U.S. citizen studying abroad, ‘Seven Corners’ is designed to protect you during your time away from home.
