Emergency Medical Evacuation and Natural Disaster Coverage for International Students

As many of you are now aware there was a very serious earthquake in Haiti.  You may be wondering what you should do and who you can turn to for help in an emergency such as this.

You can refer to FEMA’s web page about “What to do After an Earthquake” The most important things are to listen to the radio and to only place phone calls in the event of an emergency, since call volumes are very high during these times.

International students and travelers should consider having a health insurance plan that will provide benefits to them for emergency medical evacuations and natural disasters.

A popular plan that offers coverage for both of these benefits is the Atlas Travel Series is an excellent choice for health insurance for students needing emergency medical evacuation and natural disaster coverage.  The Atlas Travel Series provides coverage to students and travelers outside their home country.  It provides coverage for inpatient and outpatient services, prescription drugs, emergency medical evacuation, natural disasters,  repatriation, doctor office visits, etc..  This plan allows students to choose maximum coverage limits (from $50,000 to $1,000,000) and your deductible (from $0 to $2,500).
