Malaysia Student Health Insurance

The Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education has set a goal to have over 200,000 international students enrolled in higher education in Malaysia by 2020 and an increase in the number of international students in Malaysia can already be seen according The Malaysian Insider. If you are already an international student in Malaysia or are planning on being included in one of those 200,000 international students in the future, you are in good company.

If you have already done your pre-trip research, you might have found that health care costs in Malaysia can be more costly than what you will find in other South East Asia countries. For this reason, many schools in Malaysia require that their international students purchase health insurance for the entire duration of their studies. If you will be an international student in Malaysia, you will want to find an international health insurance plan that will meet your school requirements.

The Atlas Travel plan is a popular option for Malaysia student health insurance and can be purchased either before you set off on your journey, or after you have already arrived in Malaysia. This plan is flexible allowing you to choose your coverage amount as well as your deductible, so finding a plan that will meet your school requirements but also your budget is easy.

A few of the benefits that are included in the Malaysia Student Health Insurance are hospitalization, doctor visits, prescriptions, emergency medical evacuation, repatriation of remains, lost luggage, accidental death and dismemberment, emergency dental, local ambulance, physical therapy, trip interruption and extreme sports coverage.

If you would like more information on Malaysia student health insurance or to purchase a plan, please contact one of our licensed agents today.
