Getting comprehensive insurance cover is an absolute must for players during their time in America. A lot of schools will have compulsory comprehensive health insurance that you must pay for but which covers you while you are on and off campus and when playing sports. For proper protection, you must consider travel insurance and we have been working with the only long stay specialist in the UK, our trusted partner for many years.. It is important to recognise that travel insurance is a completely different product to Health Insurance. The Study Abroad scheme is not just medical coverage only (as Health Insurance is), it provides many sections of cover, flexibility and includes repatriation and emergency medial cover. The Study Abroad scheme complements any Health Insurance, especially off-campus – beware, the bills for repatriation can potentially run into hundreds of thousands.

(a) International students will normally be ‘encouraged’ to purchase the recommended campus Health Insurance – it may already be included in your fees or you could well have to pay separately and it may not be a nice surprise. Premiums vary enormously between Universities, Colleges, Schools and State to State. Please ensure you check out the level of cover and possible limitations, such as secondary insurance.
(b) Occasionally, if you do not have to purchase the campus health insurance up front, they will always be able to suggest an alternative.
(c) Very rarely, if they are not pushing their own Health Insurance, you could be allowed to purchase elsewhere. They will, however, almost certainly require an American insurer. We can put you in touch with a specialist Broker in the UK but again, it may be a ‘closed shop’ on campus.
Example Premiums…10 MONTHS WORLDWIDE….£408.46
