Canada International Student Insurance for the US

Last year, the United States hosted over 28,000 international students from Canada. In fact, among all sending countries, Canada was ranked #4 worldwide as having the highest amount of international students in the United States. This comes as no surprise as Canadians have an easier time adjusting to studying in the US. Sharing a border, language, and having a more relaxed visa system make it an easier adjustment for Canadian students studying overseas in the US.

While Canadians enjoy a nationalized health care, the United States relies on a mainly private system where individuals are responsible for their own medical costs. Generally speaking, US citizens and residents will generally have an insurance plan in place to help cover their health care expenses in the United States. For international students, there are specific international student insurance plans designed especially for you!

Canadian student insurance is a popular option when students come to the US since you can find comprehensive coverage at an affordable rate. These plans provides coverage outside your home country for doctor visits, hospitalization, prescription medication, emergency medical evacuation, repatriation, etc. With our Canadian student insurance, the Student Secure, you can choose the coverage best for you as the plan is available in three levels providing you with options to include sports, maternity, and mental health among the many options.

By purchasing a student insurance before arriving in the US, you can rest assured that you can go to the doctor or hospital of your choice and receive immediate treatment at an affordable rate. Medical expenses are the highest in the United States compared to other nations so be prepared before coming to the Untied States to study.
