Korean International Student Insurance

As an international student in the United States, it is highly recommended that you purchase an insurance plan while overseas. The US health care system is quite different compared to South Korea’s National Health Insurance program where health insurance is mandatory and the fees and treatment are standardized by the government.

Unlike South Korea, the United States does not automatically enroll you in an insurance plan since coverage is not mandatory. Additionally, the cost of health services, examinations, and prescription medication is much more expensive than what you may be accustomed to. It is not uncommon for an emergency visit to add up to thousands of dollars. To avoid this, you will want to enroll in an international student insurance plan that will cover you while studying in the US.

Korean international student insurance
is a well-suited option for students studying in a foreign country. The plan is available in three levels to provide you with the coverage you are looking for. These plans cover doctor visits, hospitalization, prescription medication, emergency medical evacuation, repatriation, etc. With up to $300,000 in coverage, you will have the proper protection in case the unexpected occurs.

Please contact our insurance representatives who are available to answer your questions about your insurance options.
