The importance of health insurance for international students

Health insurance is not only a smart idea for international students to have but it can protect you from financial burden if an unexpected illness/injury should happen. Most students are young and healthy and will rarely have medical issues. However, it’s a smart idea to have a comprehensive medical plan in place to protect you.

The Student Secure plan is a very comprehensive and affordable student health plan for international students both, inside and outside the US. Student Secure comes in two levels, budget and select. The plan provides comprehensive inpatient and outpatient medical coverage up to $250,000 (budget) or $300,000 (select).

The plan also includes maternity, mental health, prescription drugs, sports coverage, emergency medical evacuation, repatriation, doctor office visits, etc. You have the option to pay for it all at once or on a monthly basis.

After you purchase this plan, you will immediately receive a confirmation e-mail. In this e-mail, it will contain your insurance card, letter of coverage, receipt and policy details.

Students have many options available to them in Washington State. Washington state law provides that any students or dependents up to age 25 can remain on their parent’s health insurance plans. In addition, many individual plans are available to students for very low cost. Temporary student health insurance plans are also widely available and cover short term needs. However, student health insurance plans are not a substitute for permanent health insurance.
