International Student Athletic Coverage

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.

Hi Srdjan,

Thanks for visiting! Your son would need the Budget or Select level if he needs organized school sport coverage. However, the price will depend on his age. You can view the pricing chart here.

I play basketball at USAO in Oklahoma. I have a pre-existing condition that requires to have regular cardiologist (echocardiogram) check-up before and after the season. Is it something that your insurance plan would cover?

Bryanna Davis says:

Hi Ilze,

Thank you for visiting.

Our International Student Health Insurance plan is one you will want to check out. This plan has $5000 in organized sports coverage and only a 6 month waiting period for eligible pre-existing conditions. You can view more on this plan here. Keep in mind you would need to be on the plan for 6 months prior to having coverage for a pre-existing condition.

My daughter is travelling to the US as a student athlete (track and field) and requires travel and medical insurance. Would the Student Secure Plan – Select level be appropriate? She needs to be covered for her travel to and from the States also. Is a separate insurance needed for this?

H Hutchings says:

Hi.I am a staff of a International boarding school in the US. All our student have sports insurance. However, some of our students who play rugby would like to purchase additional insurance if possible. Could you please let me know what plan you would recommend them to purchase and the maximum coverage in case of injury during sports sessions. Thanks.
