Health Insurance Documents

Having an international student health insurance plan allows students to feel secure that in the event of an emergency medical situation, they will not be stuck with hefty bills. Although student health insurance plans are great for providing a sense of peace, they are also often required when obtaining a visa and enrolling in classes.

As an international student, moments will arise when you will be faced with the task of retrieving your health insurance documents to prove you have adequate coverage. To ensure that students who have purchased the Student Secure plan are provided with the documents they need at the highest level of convenience, they have access to the Student Zone. Students are able to print their necessary documents from the Student Zone as needed.

Health Insurance Document Breakdown:

The visa letter/confirmation of coverage: This document is often used when students need to show proof of coverage to obtain a visa. The confirmation of coverage includes key information like home country, country of assignment, benefit amounts and length of coverage.

The policy fulfillment: This is your receipt from when you originally purchased your plan. It contains our contact information as well as the breakdown of your important plan information.

The extension endorsement: When you extend your coverage, this document will be your receipt. It includes your certificate ID number, the amount paid and the number of months the plan was extended to.

The ID card: Your ID card is important to have on hand if you seek medical treatment. Although possession of this card does not guarantee all treatment will be covered, it does have information that providers might need to ensure your eligible expenses are covered.

When you are on a strict deadline to provide proof of your health insurance coverage, rest assured that you are able to gather your documents in minutes, not days.
