Requirements for Health Insurance​ Abroad

There are certain countries with national healthcare systems which require those with a student visa or immigration status to be enrolled in the country's healthcare plan. Additionally, there may be host universities with specific health insurance requirements. These plans typically do NOT cover you while you travel to/from and outside your host location.

Additionally, these plans typically do NOT include coverage which IPS deems necessary for study abroad participants. Participants may be required to purchase insurance in the host country to meet their legal requirements in addition to purchasing insurance through the IPS-recommended provider to meet the international health and travel coverage requirements.

International insurance coverage should include:
  • Coverage limit at least $250,000
  • Emergency medical evaluation
  • Political/Natural disaster evacuation
  • Repatriation of remains
  • Accidental death and dismemberment
