Many international students playing sports may realize that their student policy excludes coverage for athletic activities. Whether playing football or basketball, you will want to know the type of coverage that is specifically included in your plan. For those who do not already have a policy, you will look at many different policies with different benefits. The best advice is to check if the plan has sports coverage already included or if you can add it as an option. Be sure to ask and review the exclusions so there are no surprises! International student health insurance policies are more likely to cover this – however you will want to confirm by reviewing the benefits and exclusions of your plan.
One popular option for international student athletes is the Student Secure plan. The plan is offered in three levels, the Smart, Budget and Select level, so that you can find the plan that specifically meets your needs. The Budget and Select level provide coverage for organized sports – whether it be intercollegiate, interscholastic, intramural or just a club sport. Covered organized sports are: basketball, baseball, cross country, dance team, football, golf, kickball, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis, track, volleyball, weight training, and wrestling.
