Require All Exchange Students to Get International Health Insurance
The Goal. To make it easier for exchange students to manage their healthcare expenses by getting a good international health insurance.
The Problem. Each semester, thousands of international students visit countries like the U.K. and the U.S. to study as exchange students. These students come on a student visa which guarantees that they will be able to study legally abroad. But a student visa isn’t the only document needed in order to have a smooth exchange program overseas. International students also need health insurance that will safeguard their healthcare needs. Sadly, there are students who put this at the bottom of their to-do list and opt to get international health insurance upon arrival to their host country.
The Solution. Students must prioritize their international student health insurance even while still in their home countries. They should go over their options for international medical insurance because there are so many plans and coverages around and they need to really think things through. There are many factors to consider like the length of stay abroad, the type of study program they’re in, and their own medical history. These things take time and opting to set it aside and just do it once they reach their destination country is counterproductive and maybe even a little too late.
